An enlivening reminder that there is always a hope of a beginning even when there seems to be nothing but endings.
“He is not here; he has risen.”
Matthew 28:6 – NIV
“There’s something of a restorative quality about this time of year, where something whispers wild rumors of new beginnings arising from the seemingly dead seeds in our lives.”
If it were true that there were no beginnings whatsoever, then we would be forever doomed to an endless litany of debilitating endings. A life of perpetual endings would leave us abandoned without a single benevolent notion of what a beginning might be, while concurrently depriving us of any reassuring inkling that somehow one might be possible. And if our lives are nothing more than a story penned of terminal endings, the nature of our existence would be singularly defined by waiting for endings.
Yet, an empty tomb is the beginning that broke every ending. One of the potently stunning truths of Easter is that only God could craft a forever beginning out of an immoveable end. And that is both the gift and legacy of Easter that is ours both now and forever.
Wishing you the forever beginning birthed from His forever resurrection.
