A Miracle that made everything possible!

Easter for me has always been a season of reflection, and humility. Our Savior dying, being resurrected, and humanity’s redemption through His sacrifice. What love, what grace, what mercy, what peace, we’ll never be able to fully comprehend. But it is even more reassuring  is the beautiful fact that the story of our Savior, doesn’t just end there at His crucifixion. His story is a miracle and it’s only just beginning.!

To share my hopes for y’all this season, here is a C.S. Lewis piece……..

 

The Grand Miracle:
“One is very often asked at present whether we could not have a Christianity stripped, or, as people who asked it say, ‘freed’ from its miraculous elements, a Christianity with the miraculous elements suppressed. Now, it seems to me that precisely the one religion in the world, or, at least the only one I know, with which you could not do that is Christianity. In a religion like Buddhism, if you took away the miracles attributed to Gautama Buddha in some very late sources, there would be no loss; in fact, the religion would get on very much better without them because in that case the miracles largely contradict the teaching. Or even in the case of a religion like Mohammedanism, nothing essential would be altered if you took away the miracles. You could have a great prophet preaching his dogmas without bringing in any miracles; they are only in the nature of a digression, or illuminated capitals. But you cannot possibly do that with Christianity, because the Christian story is precisely the story of one grand miracle, the Christian assertion being that what is beyond all space and time, what is uncreated, eternal, came into nature, into human nature, descended into His own universe, and rose again, bringing nature up with Him. It is precisely one great miracle. If you take that away there is nothing specifically Christian left. There may be many admirable human things which Christianity shares with all other systems in the world, but there would be nothing specifically Christian. Conversely, once you have accepted that, then you will see that all other well-established Christian miracles—because, of course, there are ill-established Christian miracles; there are Christian legends just as much as there are heathen legends, or modern journalistic legends—you will see that all the well-established Christian miracles are part of it, that they all either prepare for, or exhibit, or result from the Incarnation. Just as every natural event exhibits the total character of the natural universe at a particular point and space of time; so every miracle exhibits the character of the Incarnation.”

Hello Friends!

It was the year of 2013 when I prayed and asked God for opportunities to get out of my comfort zone. How has it been you ask? It has been ridiculously crazy, exciting, heartbreaking, painful, crazy all over again and the list goes on and on and on…But I don’t regret asking God for those moments  at all. Those moments have not only been special, but I can now say that I am a step closer to being more dependent on Him. I asked Him for those moments that I can serve Him with and He gave me Proverbs 16:3, which is now my life verse. “Commit your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established.”

I wanted to start something that people could see and be motivated in being fearless, bold and confident for Christ. I’ll be posting about Mission Trips, or just random things that I’m really uncomfortable with, that I feel I am able to do; because it’s not about me, and it should never be about me. I really can’t wait to share my heart and the joy that comes with being super dependent on my Father!

Love Y’all
