The Tomb was Empty!

Thankful Thursday...last night during my weekly class with the littlest ones at church, we had an Easter egg hunt. Goodness, were they wound up - I mean, excited! After they found an egg, they would open it and...the eggs were empty! I did exchange their egg for candy from my basket but not until we talked about those empty eggs....just like the empty tomb!

As a born-again Christian, there is nothing more wonderful than knowing the tomb was empty. How grateful I am that Christ would die on the cross as payment for my sins; however, if He had not risen from the dead three days would have been in vain. This Thursday, I am so thankful for an empty tomb. Knowing that my Savior rose again gives me.....

VICTORY....Death was not the end of Jesus. Christ had victory over sin and death. As a Christian, I can also know victory - over sin and its weight of guilt and over eternal death/dying. I will live forever one day with Him. And, yes - Tyler was a Christian and has this same victory so I will be reunited with Him!! and many other loved ones.

CONFIDENCE....The Savior I love so much is alive! He is available to help me, comfort me, guide me, plead my case, love me, hear my prayers - and I don't fumble through this life without purpose and protection. I serve a risen Savior!! Everything about my life is different because He lives!

Have a beautiful Thankful Thursday!!
