Psalm 30

This morning, I read Psalm 30 and was touched by all the wonderful things that Jesus does for His own:

*lifts us up
* does not let our foes rejoice over us
* heals us when we cry to Him
*brings our lives up from the grave
* gives us His favor
* establishes us like a strong mountain
* has mercy and is gracious to us
* is our Helper
* turns our mourning into dancing
* clothes us with gladness

To that end, my tongue and my heart and everything glorious within me may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever! (Psalm 30:12).

This is Easter week…that time of year that leads up to the most incredible miracle and joyful event this world has ever seen: the Resurrection of Jesus.

Don’t be silent.

Share the greatest Gift that has ever been given in the history of the world.

Don’t be afraid to tell others  how beautiful He is.

There are so many who need to know the joy and the certainty that there is an empty grave and He is ALIVE!

“Despite our efforts to keep Him out, God intrudes. The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities: a virgin’s womb and an empty tomb. Jesus entered our world through a door marked ‘No Entrance’ and left through a door marked ‘No Exit.’ “—Peter Larson
