Graceful Perseverance: A Time of Resurrection

Posted April 23rd, 2014 @ 03:04pm

A Time of Resurrection

"They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus" (Luke 24:1-3 NIV).

He is Risen...

This is a time in life where our faith shows up. It is this place where we are called to share the good news of the resurrection (2 Corinthians 5:15-20). And it is here where the non-believer has denied Christ three (3) times, as the disciple Peter did hours before Jesus' crucifixion. "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16). We are to share the message behind the power of the resurrection and how it applies to each of our lives. Truth through the lens of the resurrection of Christ, there is new hope, a new life promised to us. During this time we are reconciled to God and He will never forsake us.

The hope of the resurrection has washed away the old and the new is here. During this Holy time we are surrendering to something Heavenly. All things are made new. Now that all things are made new, what kind of life will you live? What kind of life will I live? I choose to live a life that counts, that has purpose, a life that serves, and a life where I love myself and others alike. "For we are all God's handiwork, created in Jesus Christ to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10).

For me this Holy season of resurrection is powerful and has been life changing for me. My life plan is no longer my plan. The road I set out to travel I no longer can travel. At the blink of an eye and many audible messages from God, he clearly has shaken up my life this Holy season. He has clearly and without doubt let me know that the life I was planning was not, at this time, His plan for my life. So it is with great pain and heartache that I must remain faithful through this transition, through this time of change and unfamiliar territory. All things are becoming new for me. Every day He shows me His way. My life is being revealed to me and it is not at all the path I thought He wanted me to travel. But it is with great courage and discernment that I will follow Him.

Only with God

From Sanctus Real 2008 - I couldn't have said it better with what's He's doing with me in my life since the day of resurrection!

Whatever You're Doing - Something Heavenly

It's time for healing, time to move on.

It's time to fix what's been broken too long.

Time make right what has been wrong.

It's time to find my way to where I belong.

There's a wave that's crashing over me.

All I can do is surrender!

Whatever you're doing inside of me,

It feels like chaos, somehow there's peace.

It's hard to surrender to what I can't see,

but I'm giving in to something Heavenly!

Time for a milestone,

Time to begin again,

Revaluate who I really am.

Am I doing everything to follow your will,

or just climbing aimlessly over these hills?

So show me what it is you want from me,

I give everything I surrender...

To Thee…

Time to face up,

Clean this old house,

Time to breathe in and let everything out.

That I've wanted to say for so many years,

Time to release all my held back tears!

Whatever you're doing inside of me,

It feels like chaos, but I believe,

You're up to something bigger than me,

Larger than life something Heavenly!

Whatever you're doing inside of me

It feels like chaos, but now I can see,

This something bigger than me,

Larger than life something Heavenly!

Something Heavenly!

It's time to face up,

Clean this old house,

Time to breathe in and let everything out!

And this blog then leaves me to say "I've shared my message behind the power of the resurrection and how it has applied to my life everyday and how it can inspire you in your life everyday. Believe there is new hope, a new life promised to each of us."  

A Relationship with God!

As I travel this new hope, this new life, I am reminding myself hourly to have patience enough to let faith complete its work in me. I must have strength enough to battle obstacles and overcome them.  I must have purpose enough to understand and accept the "why" and not just the "how" of this new life He has revealed to me through resurrection.

God Bless,

Debra Pauli
