Enjoying the warmth of spring and blooming flowers reminds us of the power of life. But Easter holds more. Easter is more. It is about dormant hearts waking up to hope. It is a celebration of wholeness from devastation and victory over brokenness. Easter is defined by Jesus’ love for us! Easter is the true story of Jesus crucified on the cross for our sins, rising from the dead three days later, and offering us the same living power that dwelled inside of Him.
Have you ever wondered why you carry the deep-seated longing to be known, loved, and accepted? Have you ever felt the need to belong? All of us have. It’s what makes us human. God knows these emotions because they originated in Him. He wants to share life with you.
Prayer is so powerful because of who is at the other end of the conversation. Imagine the difference between talking to the postman and talking to the President. Everything changes when we realize who is listening. We are able to talk to the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
