Holy Week

I as an individual have gone through this holy week in a whole new light. I felt the hurt of Christ's death on Good Friday in a way that was more real than ever before. The son of God crucified on a cross where he breathed his last. The pain God must have felt in his son's treatment and sacrifice. Now today (Easter) a celebration of the resurrection. The promise that for Christ's sacrifice, we all can be saved. Knowing that my son is with God's son has brought me a degree of peace as this lenten season draws to a close. HE IS RISEN ! RISEN INDEED! HALLELUJAH !

Matthew 6 verse 34

"so don't worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring it's own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today."
This was a verse that was very important to Kyle. We had it read at his funeral. I didn't really get it until recently. For me, I interpreted that previously to mean that god will only dish out what we can handle. I have struggled with that verse since Kyle's death. Under my old interpretation it was tough because it seems as though God has given me and my family and insurmountable task. It was Saturday when we attended the Rock and Worship Roadshow in honor of Kyle that it finally came to me. Today as we mourn his death on his 18th birthday, I decided to share this with whoever reads his blog. I realized the meaning of this verse is not "God only gives me what I can handle." The TRUE meaning to me is that ANYTHING is possible through God. This has lifted my burdens whenever think of this verse. I hope it will lift you up too if you are going through anything difficult.
