9 And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!" - Mark 11:9-10
On this Easter Sunday, our hearts should cry out "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” We love a God who truly does save.
This world will bring us tribulations. There will be heartache and trials in this world, there will be days when we want to give up, there will be times when it all feels like it’s just too much too bear.
We live in this world, so the question should not be will we experience trouble. It shouldn’t even be why do we experience trials. The world is broken. When we refer to the world, we’re not talking about the earth or the planet, instead we’re talking about the system of sin and evil that wreaks havoc on our relationships, on our bodies, on this world. And since we don’t have any choice but to live in this broken world, we have to expect that we will experience difficult days.
The question is not whether you are living in the world, but whether you are living in triumph. We are told as believers in Christ, we can take heart. In this world, He has overcome the troubles of the world to bring us peace.
There is trouble, but there is triumph. The pain of Friday is real, but have faith - the joy of Sunday is coming. The sorrow and suffering of Friday scars us, but it does not win because Sunday is coming. The trouble of this world wounds, but it does not win. Choose to live in victory. Choose to live in peace.
Hosanna in highest!! We love a God who saves us from the troubles of the world. We may experience trials here in this world, but we know that He is risen so that we can find true peace. Happy Easter, friends!!
Press on ~ you are loved 💗

I am a believer in Christ, and I have breast cancer. On August 17, 2017, I was diagnosed with an aggressive (HER2+), recurrent (hormone negative) type of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. At this point, they have not yet staged my cancer because they are waiting for the biopsy results from a suspicious spot in the second breast. The biopsy is scheduled for September 5th, with a lumpectomy to follow on September 7th. They will formally stage my cancer after they biopsy my lymph nodes, which will be taken during the surgery. It doesn't make any sense to me that I have a cancer diagnosis - I am a fairly healthy woman who runs 2 miles almost every day and eats a gluten-free, primarily paleo diet, with no family history at all. But it makes sense to God, and so here I am. Update ~ They found 4 isolated invasions during the lumpectomy. Due to the nature of my cancer (HER2+ and ER-), the recommended protocol is chemotherapy and radiation. Beginning in October, my chemotherapy regime
When we launched our new blog we had no idea if anyone would see it or be helped by it, but we knew that the LORD was prompting us to step out in faith and just do it. The response has been amazing and we are looking forward to how God will use this space for His glory. We have learned over many years of service in a variety of ministries, that God does not require human assistance to realize His plans for individuals, churches, nations, or the human race. But the story of the bible is the story of God’s will playing out through the words and actions of the His children. So…we pray, meditate on his Word, and write from the heart about the truths that mold our faith, guide our actions, and inspire our hearts and minds. Please visit the site and subscribe to continue receiving posts. https://graceinmarriage.com/ It is our sincere hope that you are blessed by our work here and welcome your input on how we can make Grace in Marriage even better. Thank you for your support.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. - Psalm 73:25-26 What believer would not want to experience the kind deep devotion to God found in these verses? This kind of loyal commitment is the desire of every person of faith....yet it eludes so many of us. If you've been a believer for long, you know there are times it does not come easy. There is a great price involved in reaching the kind of faith found in these verses. This level of commitment is only achieved through fierce struggle. The battle between Spirit and flesh is constant, but it is in the battle that we are strengthened when we choose to lean in and trust God, to turn to Him for our strength in the battle, and to keep our eyes fixed on Him despite what the world throws at us. Asaph wrote these words only after a difficult and confusing crisis of faith. He was tempted to com
