Happy Easter—Christ is Risen!

And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.  But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.  
(Mark 16:6-7 KJV)

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.  He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.  (Matthew 28:5-7 KJV)

To my readers:  Even though I have not posted much this year, I remain committed to sharing here about Jesus and helping you learn and grow in your faith.  I encourage you to check out (and like) Faith Journey with Kim: Growing in Christ Jesus on Facebook; join in the occasional discussion on the posts there.  I plan to post soon on a topic that the Lord placed on my heart several weeks ago.

Today is a day of celebration!  On Easter we celebrate the wondrous news that Jesus Christ arose from the grave.  In Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection He gave us victory over sin, death, and the grave!  We should rejoice everyday of all we have in Jesus. 

As we remember all that Jesus did for us, may we understand it in a fresh, new way this year. 

On this special day, I want to encourage you to spend some time worship of our Savior through reading the Scriptures that tell the story of Jesus’ resurrection and in songs that share the story as well; I will share a couple songs below for your enjoyment.

Christ the Lord is Risen Today:  

He’s Alive by Don Franciso:  

Please join with me in prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father,  thank You for sending Your only Son to die in our place—to redeem us from our sins—even though we did not deserve it.  With great joy, we exclaim, on Easter and every day, “HE IS RISEN”!!  He is risen indeed!  May this knowledge change how we live our lives each and every day.  In Jesus’ Name we pray.  Amen.

From My Heart to Yours,


Happy Easter!  May God Bless you richly today and everyday!


  1. Alleluia!!! The Lord is risen!!! May we celebrate that fact not just on Easter, but every day as you said here, Kim.
    Love and blessings to you!

    1. Christ is risen, indeed! Thank you for taking the time to stop, read, comment, and share yesterday, Martha. Jesus' death and resurrection should really make a difference in our daily lives.

      Love and blessings!
