Easter: Made stronger than I am

This week spring is in my heart. The warmer temperatures, the blossoms blooming, the clear blue skies and bright sunshine all bring this new sense of life to my soul. It reminds me of Christ, the one who enlivens my soul and brought life to the whole world.

In my quiet time this morning {which is a rare beauty} I read this verse while reading THIS talk:

“Yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord.” (Mosiah 24:15)

I want this verse to be the core of my life. I will always have burdens, even though my heart seems to yearn for the time when my life will be free of them. But even though there will always be something that is hard, worrisome, or wears me down, I can always turn to God, be strengthened by Him, and then move on and live my life {full of burdens} cheerfully.

That is my desire. To be stronger because of my life. Not simply keep asking for an easier life.

I know I have been absent for quite a while, but I have a new goal to be back more often, but with more simple posts. I’ve realized I live for these meaningful thoughts. I long for a space to dump my brain. I want to write my thoughts with no reservations. They will show what I care for and be raw and real. They will embrace my beliefs and all I live and love.

I hope this Easter week is meaningful for you as it is for me. I’m feeling enlivened by the bright knowledge that God lived and died to give me life and strengthen me.
