142.0 Overcomer! Why Easter Confirms There is Hope after the Loss of a Loved One.



Last week we talked about being a conqueror and this week it’s gonna be about being an overcomer. Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten that you are dealing with grief, but I’m not talking about what you are supposed to muster up in your own strength which may feel opposite of how your current days.

My grief journey, as you know, began with fighting God for more than a full year, so this is not the Easter message you are used to hearing.  The Resurrection of Jesus didn’t move me during that season – it was the other less inspiring aspects that drew me to God.

This Easter your hope can’t be in trying harder or all the things you think you ‘should’ do or ‘should’ feel. Your hope can’t be found in the past (because it’s gone) or the future (when hopefully things will change). It can only be found in Jesus.


WORD of the Week   I have told you all this so that you will have peace of heart and mind. Here on earth, you will have many trials and sorrows; but cheer up, for I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33
