“Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.” The women ran quickly from the tomb. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.”” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:1-10‬ ‭ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wearetwelve12 #gothope #goodnewsfeed #sheislight #bibleverses #scripture #dailydevotion #faithblogger#christianblogger #christianlife #gracemakers #faithinspired #womenintheword #momsinministry #womensministry #womeninministry #ttc #infertility #miscarriage #stillbirth #ivf #adoption #endometriosis #pcos #marriage #nonprofit #easter #resurrection #jesus #tomorrow

This job allows me the opportunity to hear of so many beautiful love stories. But there’s one that just completely wrecks my heart. As we celebrate Easter, I am reminded that it truly is the most beautiful love story of all time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How great it is to be loved by a God who not only forgives us of literally everything we’ve done “wrong,” but he makes all of those things work together for good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There have been seasons I’ve gone through in my life where I can’t fully understand or accept this. And to be honest, I’m walking through one of those seasons right now. But thankfully I have this day to remind myself again...He never stops cleaning up our messes, yall. He never stops loving us. He never stops chasing us. He truly is our Savior. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy (early) Easter, y’all. I’ll be signing off for the rest of the weekend! ✌🏼

As girls, life is so hard sometimes. When all we see is the need for more painted on every insta post and every sponsored ad. Be content where you are. & in who you are. You are PERFECT. Say it with me... "I am exactly who God made me to be". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? // Matthew 6:25

Waiting...the whole world held it's breath. If creation groans for the second coming, how much more must it have groaned when it's Creator bowed His head in death? I imagine an eerie silence and uneasy expectation. What would happen now? Now that "the plan" appeared to fail. Nobody knew what had really happened. Nobody knew the morning would bring a glorious victory beyond their wildest dreams. Nobody knew, but the beginning was just around the corner. Morning is coming. #mysoulwaits #goodfriday #morningiscoming #joycomesinthemorning #eastersunday #heisrisen #victory #JesusisLord #easter2019 #waitforthelord #waiting #expectation #hisgracegirls #christianwriter #shewritestruth #shereadstruth #gracemakers #Christianauthor
