Lent 2020: Week 8 —Easter

Easter Sunday, April 12th, 2020

—John 20:15-16

Today is indeed a day of Celebration! The Good News of Jesus Christ is here and now! This is resurrection Sunday and we may not be attending services in churches due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, we can and should still celebrate and sing praises to God!! Being in a church, chapel, cathedral, synagogue, mosque or any other places of worship doesn’t bring us closer to God. It does make us feel good to be in those places and worship together AND God is everywhere we are. So choose to worship God today in your very best clothes or in your PJ’s, God sees your heart and soul. Sing a familiar hymn you’ve heard hundreds of times or just once, make a joyful noise to the Lord. One of my all time favorites is, “He Arose” followed by “He Lives.”

Did you notice that Jesus, calls Mary by name is the scripture verses for today? He knows your name as well. You are not an unknown to God, He knows all His children, and we are all His children. The Good News of Jesus is for everyone and we are to share the gift of salvation to everyone we meet. Every day is a gift from God and an opportunity to extend the love of Jesus with others. We are the hands and feet of Jesus helping connect the world in good and positive ways to further His kingdom.

Friends—It has been sheer joy to share stories and scripture with you during this season of Lent. I am overjoyed by the support of fellow bloggers and my personal friends and new friends I’ve met through WordPress. I thank you the privilege of sharing my faith journey with all of you. My heart is overflowing, 💛🙏🏻😊✝️

—1 John 3:19-20


“By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.”

—Psalm 139:7-12

“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”

—Psalm 139:16

“Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”

—Matthew 10:30

“And even the hairs of your head are all counted.”

—Luke 12:6-7

“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. But even the hairs of your head are all counted. Do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

—Matthew 28:6

“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
