"Now on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. But they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. Then they went in and did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. Then, as they were afraid and bowed their faces to the earth, they said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’” Luke 24:1-7

Happy Resurrection Day! It is not about colorful eggs, baskets filled with treats, or a big bunny hopping down the bunny trail. Today is about the One who came and gave His life so that we can have eternal life. Jesus lives. As you enjoy another beautiful day that the Lord has made, remember Jesus who died on the cross and rose again for all of us.

Be blessed.

I have been working a job and I cannot advance or transition out of it into my desired career. Lord, will this be the day a door of opportunity opens up to me?

You gave me a vision and it has yet to come to pass. Lord, will this be the day it happens?

The doctor gave me a bad report months ago, but I am trusting in You and standing on Your Word. Lord, will this be the day the report confirms I am healed?

When we are made to wait for an extended period of time, we might find ourselves asking, "Lord, will this be the day?" Today just might be the day. Do not give up on Him. Do not lose hope. His Word is true and His timing is perfect.

"Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday." Psalm 37;4-6

Be blessed.

Some of us overlook blessings because they do not come packaged the way we think they should be. Others are looking for something big; therefore, they miss out on recognizing something great. The Lord's blessings are all around us. They come in all forms, shapes, sizes, and colors. His blessings are tangible and intangible. 

Sweet sleep is just as much a blessing as someone walking up and giving me a crisp $100 bill. Someone might not see the blessing in a good night's sleep, but can see money as a greater blessing. Ask a person who suffers from insomnia which of the blessings he or she would choose. 

I am guilty of having viewed blessings as big and small, but lately, I have come to recognize that a blessing is a blessing.

Be blessed.

I get excited when I receive confirmations God has spoken to me. Sometimes we may doubt He is speaking to us. Maybe it is not that we doubt, but we are just not so sure. What is exciting to me are the ways in which God chooses to confirm what He has spoken.

God is not limited in His ways when sending confirmations to us. He will confirm what He has spoken through the Bible, people, dreams, even through nature. The list is endless. Do not think it is such a strange thing to ask God a question and He gives you an answer. Then someone, perhaps a stranger, walks up to you and in the midst of a conversation speaks the very thing God spoke to you. Maybe you pass by a billboard with a message that gives confirmation. God is awesome like that. 

When you experience these types of things, do not dismiss it as a mere coincidence. Give it more thought and recognize God gives us confirmations.

Be blessed.
