Five Minute Friday

It’s already Easter again. Five Minute Friday ~ Already

It is already Easter again. It has been a long time since I’ve been in a church for any reason. Sometimes it is a physical ache along with an emotional ache. I miss the services, the worship, the praise and the fellowship but this time of year, the ache is stronger. I loved being there getting ready for our sunrise service. Putting the casseroles in the oven and running back home to get ready for the service.

Today is Good Friday. I feel the crucifixion of Christ in my heart and my heart cries for his pain and suffering. I know Sunday is coming. The day of resurrection. He conquered the grave for us. I know this and believe it in my heart and soul. But why is it so hard to trust him to help me conquer the day-to-day life, the darkness and evil in the world.

It’s not that I have a bad life, I don’t. I have a wonderful husband, great family and friends, a job that I really do love. How do I stop the enemy from stealing my peace and joy? I know the Bible scriptures; they are ingrained in me but that doesn’t stop the sorrow and sadness. We live in such a fallen world.

It is already Easter again. Spring is here. The flowers are blooming. A time of renewal and rebirth. New beginnings. It’s time to find that community, that connection, that I’ve been missing for so long. A place to belong and grow. A place my grandchildren can call another “home” until we are called to our forever home.

Am I alone in feeling like this? What do you do when you feel like things just keep getting darker? Share with me here. How do we make the world a better place for our children and grandchildren?

This post is part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up!

  1. I wish I had an answer.

    As far as keeping Satan from stealing my peace and joy, which has been quite a battle for me lately since I also have some physical challenges and a lot of daily stress to deal with, I try to focus on my blessings and name them out loud, one by one, and quote Scripture out load prefaced by “It Is Written,” and put on praise and worship music, watch livestreams. It’s an ongoing battle.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! It is definitely an ongoing battle. I added daily affirmations to things I’m doing but I am going to use your examples, also. I may write them down rather than say them out loud or even do both. I appreciate you sharing and I will be praying for your challenges and stress. Keep in touch!

  2. As you say, we have to trust Him. He has already conquered evil. Spend daily time in His presence and ask for a fresh infilling of His Holy Spirit light. For our children and loved ones, we can love all over them in His love and speak truth, encouragement and life over them at every opportunity. All is well, sweet lady.

    1. You are so right! He has already conquered evil. We have found a church to try on Sunday. I am looking forward to it. One of my daughters took my two grandsons to visit it for the Easter Egg festivities and liked it. God is in control of all things. Hopefully, this will be the home church we are looking for. Thanks for stopping by and your encouragement!
