The Day After Easter

Do you ever wonder what the day after Easter was like? The mountain top experience Jesus is alive, but do you wonder if the disciples doubt? Did Thomas’ doubts take seed in the others who saw Jesus? Did they begin to think maybe it was something we all ate? I wonder.

I know I am apt to doubt and question. God calls me to do something and it isn’t as easy or fun or whatever that I think it should be, so I wonder if I heard right.

Oh but Jesus made sure the disciples knew it was Him. In fact He spent forty days on Earth before ascending to heaven. He appeared to the disciples and large groups of people. He was making sure everyone knew He was alive.

The same is true today. We do not have to doubt God’s call on our lives. If it is truly His call, He will confirm it. Often He doesn’t confirm it in the way we think He will, but He will confirm the call.

Today the day after Easter, I don’t have to doubt my Savior. He is RISEN INDEED. He is victorious over sin and death and hell. And He the God of all creation has a plan for our lives, mine and yours. Doubt it? I wouldn’t.

So here begins my list of things to thank God for:

    I thought I saw L come down to receive Christ on Sunday! So precious. I’m thankful that God gave me the privilege of being one of her teachers.

    I’m thankful for my own teachers at Eastside. One of them came up to me after service on Sunday and commented that I’ve really grown up, hehehe.

    I’m thankful for the opportunity to be an assistant coach for Southside Quiz Bowl this Saturday. The 7A finals will be live on AETN. It’s strange to think it’s already been ten years since I served as the first captain for Mr. Adams, the current Quiz Bowl coach.

    • As a teacher it is so rewarding to see the fruits of your labor. Thank you for being part of L’s story.

      You have a wonderful list of things to be thankful for. Thanks for joining in!

    Oh my! Thank you! I’ll email you now.

    What a beautiful list of gifts. Grace is absolutely one of my favorite and most beautiful gifts, too. (And my family’s high on that list, as well!)
