EASTER JOY: This is the Day the Lord has Made

This is the day the Lord has made!
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

It took time for the disciples to come to see the Easter light!
Mary Magdalen did not have the eyes to see the the Risen Christ.
The disciples did not recognize Him on the road to Emmaus.

Someimes we even fail to see the great signs of New Life.
It is even difficult for us to see what lies ahead in our own lives.
Our past is often shrouded in darkness and our future is heavy with shadows.

So what is keeping us from seeing the Risen Christ?
What are we still holding on to?
Are we still holding onto how things were?
Are we free to embrace today!

Don't let anybody or anything that has happened in your life steal the joy from you.
Thank God for what He has already done in your life.
