Happy Easter

Good Morning / Evening!

“When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, He saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?”

Many of us are like the lame man, waiting for someone to help us get to where we need to be. But listen to the whole story with your heart and see that “waiting” is not always the answer. God has given us the means to overcome any situation through Jesus. If someone steps in front of you, that only means that was not the path for you, your blessing is on the other path shown by the light of Jesus.

You don’t always have to follow to the person in front to get to your destiny, but you do have to be led by the Holy Spirit. Each of us have places in our lives where our hope has weakened, but just know that God sees us and lovingly invites us to believe in hope (Him) again. Allow Him to restore your joy of hope by trusting wholeheartedly in His power.
