introduction

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. ROMANS 8:11 (NIV) EASTER IS A beautiful time of hope and renewal. The promise of spring and glorious new life is blooming all around us. Yet, sometimes, our worries overshadow the wonder of Christ’s Resurrection. When problems seem too big to resolve on your own, turn your thoughts to Good Friday and marvel at how—in just three days—everything changed with our Lord rising. Reflect on the beautiful truth that God can turn the worst news into the best news, and no matter what sadness or stress you are experiencing, you can still be…

abide in me

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. JOHN 15:4 (NKJV) AT THE LAST Supper, Jesus told His disciples to abide in Him. Abiding in Christ is to allow Him in. Fill your mind with His Word and let His instructions direct your actions. Stay connected to Him. Lord, on this Maundy Thursday, I long to live in Your presence, knowing that my relationship with You is the most important relationship in my life.…

pay attention to your dreams

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” ACTS 2:17 (NIV) THE BIBLE HAS many instances of God sending messages through dreams. If you aren’t already paying attention and jotting down the spiritual gifts you receive while you sleep—now is the perfect time to start. The more you focus on your dreams, the more likely you will remember them and find meaning. Heavenly Father, thank You for the comfort and peace of a good night’s sleep. I pray for good dreams that guide and encourage me to live my best life.…

hold onto jesus

Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. LUKE 8:43–44 (NKJV) IS THERE A situation in your life that feels hopeless? This verse is a reminder that when you feel desperate, you can grab hold of Jesus. He can heal. Most importantly, He has the ability to grant you grace even if your situation remains the same. His love can help you. Father God, when life seems hopeless, I only need to reach out to You to feel better.…

a limitless life

And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” MARK 14:36 (ESV) DO YOU LIMIT your prayers by holding back on asking God for help or by not praying for something that would really bring you joy? Take a moment and think about why you aren’t bringing these requests to Him. Heavenly Father, I know that You care for me. Today I am going to share my deepest worries and dreams with You and trust that You know what is best for me.…

give up control

The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will. PROVERBS 21:1 (ESV) SOME THINGS IN life are simply beyond our control. As much as we might want something, we can’t always make it happen. We can do our part, but ultimately there are times when we have to adopt a “wait and see” approach. Letting life unfold by releasing the outcome to God is a gift you can give yourself. Lord, when I release my grip on the outcome, I feel myself relax, knowing You are in control. Because of You, I can breathe in the peace of the present moment.…
