I am so excited for this week! This week is a time of reflection, introspection, and celebration for me. Although many events come and go throughout the year, every year, this is one that I take the time to truly soak up and enjoy. Why? Because Easter defines and reflects where my purpose comes from- My Christian Faith. It is because I am a Christian that I see the world the way I do, I reflect the way I reflect, and I move with intention during my life on this earth.
So what is Easter? Easter is the day of celebration that my Savior, OUR Savior was raised from the dead! He not only lived a perfect life on this earth for us, but He died for me and for you and our sins, and then He rose for us as He had said He would. Ladies, there is SO MUCH I would love to dive into with this sentence alone, but to sum it up... God the Father gave up His One and Only Son to take the place for me so that I may have eternal salvation!
I wanted to share this with you today, because I feel we often forget what this day is truly about. The stores sell Peeps and candy to fill eggs with, we color eggs, and eat a lot of chocolate. We plan elaborate dinners and may even enjoy the company of family. All of these things are great things, but they are not THE REASON for Easter.
For me, Easter allows the time for reflection on my life and the way I am living it. It reminds me that to show love to my oh-so-loving God is to obey His commands and His plans for my life. I often find myself in awe of how small I am and how big my God is, especially during this week. I use this time to dive into His word and be reminded about why I am who I am and what a beautiful title I have been given. I am a Child of God and a Sister in Christ to my fellow Christians. This title is both humbling and exciting. I have a responsibility to not only myself, but to others and ultimately to God; to reflect His love to the world through how I choose to live. It is a big gift, but one I need to be more intentional about daily. I am constantly reminded about this single fact when it comes to the responsibility we have- HE CARED SO MUCH HE DIED FOR ME!
Easter is a time to look to the cross, to celebrate how amazing our Lord is, and to remind ourselves how much we need our Savior. Then, let us take this love and this amazing gift and share it with the world! Let us CELEBRATE this special day ladies! :)
I share this with you because I believe knowing a person's purpose is the beginning to understanding who they are. With this in mind, my faith is my foundation and everything grows from it and so I simply want to share my joy and celebration with you! I would love to chat over a cup of coffee if you would like to learn more about my roots and why God is so amazing!
