Romans 8:31 "What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?"

I like how God is always for me. He hears every prayer I pray; he just chooses to answer them in his perfect timing and his perfect way and he might even answer them with a "no" because he knows it is not the best thing for me or maybe will wait to answer them allowing me to grow by patience or will answer them quickly with a "go".

There is no place I can go to hide from him. He knows me better than I know myself. He guides, he protects, he leads, he sustains, he provides.

I believe Jesus is the only way to Father God. "John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, the life, no one comes to the father except through me."

I believe God loves all of us. John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

I believe Jesus died for my sins and when I asked him to forgive them and accepted him as my Lord and Savior, I got the assurance of eternal life with him in heaven.

On this eve before Easter Sunday, I am so grateful to Father God for sending Jesus to die for my sins and that Jesus was willing to die for me and that he rose again and he is ALIVE!!!

He is risen.

He is risen indeed!

(Happy Easter all :)

What a beautiful Truth! I am so grateful to Jesus...He was given a choice, you know? But He said, "Not My will, but Yours."

When facing life, it is good to know you have HIM on your side. His is the winning team, and I am glad we are on it.
Love from the other coast, cool but warming to a great Easter here in SC.

Beautiful post Betty!
I feel awful because I haven't been over here in awhile and I didn't know I could comment (you couldn't before right?)
I am catching up now!

A wonder-full Easter Sunday blessing to you and yours!

May you experience the joy of the Truth this Resurrection Day – that we serve the Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Praise His name for His gift of salvation, and for the hope and promise of eternal life.

You remind me of a piano piece I used to be able to play, "Christ the Lord is Risen Today". I rehearsed it a bazillion times in order to play it at a recital at Church... and to this day can hear the congregation singing the words... even though I can barely hear anything anymore.
