The Tomb Was Dark, but the Resurrection Changed It All!

Do things look hopeless? Does it seem that your circumstances have gotten so bad that there is no way it can get better now?

A marriage that seems lost.
A loved one headed in the wrong direction- maybe even leading others in that direction.
A business/job/career that appears it will never come back from ruins.

To look at the's dead.

Void of life or hope.
Not only dead, but buried.

You might even say that a stone has been rolled over the entrance to any possiblity of things turning around.

That is where the message of Easter brings us HOPE!

It looked bad, it looked really bad. Jesus was dead. He had been buried.
But on the third day, the stone was rolled away and He showed us what it meant to be the Resurrection and the Life.

This is the reason we hope!

When all looks dead and gone...there is hope for resurrection.

The darkness of the tomb is never forgotten, but wonderfully overshadowed by the resurrection of Easter!!!

Have a wonderful time with family and friends this Easter!

I so love the image that God can move any stone in our life. I was thinking about this yesterday as we reflected on the resurrection story and thought about how Jesus didn't need the stone to be rolled away. He arose without moving the stone. God moved the stone so that we could see inside the grave and give testimony to His fulfillment of plan. He moved the stone so others could see and tell of the resurrection and salvation through Christ. I can't help but think how we too are called to tell others how God moves the stones in our HIS glory.

Glad I stumbled upon your blog...I look forward to returning often!
