Bread For The Journey / High Hopes Part 2 ~ Easter Sunday~

Thank you for joining us this glorious day of celebration of Christs resurrection.
Did God fail......Here is the rest of the story. If you missed Part 1 just scroll down a bit.
A continuation from the book "Diapers, Pacifiers and other Holy things, written by Lorraine Pintus.

We have an advantage over Mary. We know the end of her story. We understand how, even though it seemed impossible, God would fulfill His promises to her.
Knowing this, wouldn't you love to step back in time and comfort Mary at the foot of the cross? Wouldn't you love to put your arm around her and whisper, "Don't cry, Mary! It's going to be okay. No grave can hold your son. He will be king. God hasn't let you down. Be patient; you will see. God is about to surpass all you've ever dared to hope or dream!"
God has an advantage over you, too. He knows the end of your story. He already knows how you will get through the thing in front of you.
Can I put my arm around you and whisper something in your ear? "Don't despair! God will not fail you. He has a plan. Be patient; you will see. God intends to do something in you and through you that will surpass all you've ever dared to hope or dream."
Our God is mighty. Bigger than anything facing you. Trust Him. Trust in His high hopes for you. He says, "For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told" (Hab. 1:5).

"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Matthew 19:26



  1. Thank-you so much for those kind words of encouragement, Char In a day where there is little hope we need to reach out with the Easter message and bring back that HOPE, better yet, demonstrate that the whole world can see!

  2. That is precious comfort! Thank you for sharing this message of hope. May God bless those who stop by here today with a touch of His love.

  3. How comforting to know that God knows the end of my story...of your story. And with Him, nothing is impossible.

    Blessings to you all this Easter.

  4. That is a beautiful promise to hold in our hearts on this beautiful Resurection Sunday!

  5. Thanks for the inspiration and beautiful photos. He is risen indeed!

  6. Thank you so very much for your words of encouragement. You know we all know this, and why we don't cling to it all the time and have no doubts is beyond me. But we do (or I do) "He is Alive!!!"

  7. It IS so good to know that God not only knows the end of the story, but has the power to work things out for good for those who love Him and are willing to trust HIm.
    Thank you, Char.
