As Christians we are Easter people. We know that what looks like death is not. Like the seed planted in the dark soil, new life will burst forth. Like the caterpillar after the cocooning and dissolution of the old body, a new one comes forth. In each case more vibrant and more beautiful than before.
Have I had times of transformation, remission or rebirth in my life? Am I cognizant of the blessing that it is? Do I wait in joyful hope?
Help me to offer praise and thanksgiving in all things.
Let us pray:
Lord, thank you for blessing me with your amazing grace and love, and offering me access to deep wisdom and surprising inner strength. You present me with transformation and rebirth. Here I am Lord, welcoming, embracing and embodying your gifts. Wonder and delight at the mystery and majesty fill me with abiding contentment, incredible joy and profound gratefulness. Amen.
