My Heart Was Blessed

the power of the crossWith Easter Sunday just around the corner, I’ve been working with a few teenagers on something special for the service.

As I prayed over what we should do – I was amazed at how God brought all the details together.

A choral reading with just the right message, for just the right voices.

An original song written by one of the teens that expressed so perfectly the message we’re trying to convey.

A young violinist who puts his heart into every note.

But mostly, I’ve been amazed at the hearts of those kids as they prayed…

“Use me Lord…”

And meant it.

My heart was blessed.

As I worship on Easter Sunday – my heart will be full.

Because not only do I believe in the resurrection – I have once again seen it’s power to change lives.

He is Risen indeed.


He’s Alive!

He is Risen!  He is no longer there!

He’s Alive!

By Don Fransisco

“He’s alive yes He’s alive
Yes He’s alive and I’m forgiven
Heaven’s gates are open wide
He’s alive yes He’s alive
Oh He’s alive and I’m forgiven
Heaven’s gates are open wide!”

Happy Easter!
