HALLELUJAH!



Hallelujah!
It is finally here!
The day that commemorates what our lives as believers are all about ------LIFE.
How blessed I am this morning to spend a little time with my Father and you.
How full my heart is even now when I think about the many people who will be loving on our Father today, in remembrances of what He did for us.
Thank you Jesus!
Thank you for loving us so deeply, beyond our comprehension.
Let this day of remembrance be a day that will forever change our lives
and the way we view You.
Here is a little tidbit from a devotion by Elisabeth Elliot. She is sharing some of her thoughts about a visit to the Holy Land. I love the first sentence. After you finish reading this little section --take time to come back and think about how it relates to today.

It is not our experiences which in the final analysis change us, it is always and only our responses to those experiences. In any of the holy places I could have responded with cynicism, rejection, even outrage. Their mysterious power then would have been lost on me. I found it possible instead to enter in by faith, giving myself in each place to the One who was there before me and who, despite all that worldly-minded humanity had done to those places, was still there if I sought him.

Near one of the olive trees in Gethsemane one of the Darmstadt Sisters of Mary has put up a small plaque: "O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless not as I will but as thou wilt. Thou, O Jesus, in the darkness of night and grief didst utter these words of surrender and trust to God the Father. In gratitude and love I will, in my hours of fear and desolation, say after thee, My Father, I cannot understand what thou art about but in thee do I put my trust."


Today is a day that proves we can trust in the one in whom's hands we have put the responsibility of our salvation. He is worthy -the One who snatched the keys to hell and death away from the eternal hater of our souls.
He is worthy of our praise!
He has risen!
Let proof of that victory be evidenced in your life and face today.
Let the experience of today--change our lives.
Let us cry with the angels,
WORTHY IS THE LAMB!
Let us live like the angels a life that is in worship of HIM.
