Just a reminder today that God loves you! God loves you so much that He gave his one and only Son to die on the cross for you. You are His favorite child! He knew every hair on your head before you were ever thought of here on Earth. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,” Jeremiah 1:5. He has always loved you and will always love you. There is nothing you can do that will ever change how much He loves you.
Wow! I know that the message of the blog this week doesn’t contain an organizing how-to or list spring cleaning tips, but what could be better to focus on for Easter than God’s love? Besides, spring cleaning is not only eliminating the chaos and organizing your home, it is also eliminating the chaos in your life and mind. My prayer this week is that you know Jesus died on the cross just for you. Jesus endured all the pain and agony of human life and human death just for you. He rose from the dead just for you. So that you may have eternal life with God. God loves you even if you don’t realize it, recognize it, or accept it right now. All people go through a period of doubt at some time. As Yann Martel writes in Life of Pi, “We must all pass through the garden of Gethsemane. If Christ played with doubt, so must we. If Christ spent an anguished night in prayer, if He burst out from the Cross, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ then surely we are also permitted doubt.” I pray that the doubt will always pass, though. The sun will shine again. The Son did rise for us. God will forgive your sins… all you have to do is ask. I pray and SYP prays that you find God and Jesus Christ as your Savior this Easter!
