Day 1: Undoubting Belief


The basket is empty

The chocolate bunny is eaten

The fast is over

So now what?

If you gave up cookies for lent~ are you now eating a bag of 0reos?

If you gave up a glass of wine~ are you now drinking a bottle?

If you gave up _____________~ are you giving into it now?

When we fasted from the weights of this world

through Lent

did it bring you closer to

God

because your eyes were fixed on

His Son?

I know it did for me

&

it has been life changing.

So what do I do now

So what do you do now~

do we become

anxious

hopeless

&

fearful~

forgetting we fasted from them?

Do I put Jesus back in the tomb until Christmas in 266 days?

But

Jesus didn't put Himself back in the tomb

because

Immediately

He Rises

and

Moves Forward

not looking back

even though

He still wore the scars in His hands and His feet.

He is for real

as

He said to doubting Thomas~

“Put your finger here and see my hands.

Reach out your hand and put it in my side.

Do not doubt but believe. John 20:27

It is really Me!

The Risen Lord!

Do not Doubt

when what you see is not what you want to see

Do not Doubt

when things are not working out the way you want them to work out

Do not Doubt

when your feelings don't coincide with truth

Do not Doubt when _____________?

You fill in the blank.

Believing is Seeing But Believe

the Risen Lord

in all things

because

He is here

He is there

with

His

outstretched arm~

the one with the scars

to show

You & I

that

It is really Him.

He has risen to walk with you.

Therefore~

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

"I"

means

You & I.

It is so personal,

yet for

everybody.

"I Can"~

when

the

I in us

and

Him

join together

will be strenghtened

to

Live on Purpose

in the midst of whatever is or isn't going on

in your life.

. "Through Him"

because

"for without Me you can do nothing." John 15:5

"Me"~

not you or I

But

Him~

The One

who

takes residence in our

mind

body

& soul.

Where do you need the strength to take that next step

into what seems impossible in this precious moment?

Do not doubt but believe~

not in circumstances

not in others

not in feelings

but in the

Risen One

who

rises in you

so that you can live in your

Redeemed Restored Reality

& all that

You & I

have to do is

Just

Believe`

for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5

So

Let's

Put on

Believing

and

Gain a pound

that

you will never want to lose.
