The day my dad died there was a huge shift in my foundation of faith. I had been taught since I was very young about Jesus, his resurrection and the surety of life after death. It always felt true to me. When faced with the reality of never seeing someone you love-like a father-my perspective gained new intensity. The faith that had been my foundation seemed to now be teetering on a balancing ball. The thought running in the background of my mind for weeks after- “this better be true.” This hope really has given Easter a new meaning for me.
Joseph B. Wirthlin said, “The Resurrection is at the core of our beliefs as Christians. Without it, our faith is meaningless. The Apostle Paul said, ‘If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and [our] faith is also vain.’”
I believe that one day we will be reunited with those we love. Thanks to our Savior Jesus Christ, there is renewal, returning, repenting and a beautiful resurrection. That belief bring so much joy, relief and hope.
One response to “the reality of the resurrection”
Very well said my love, I am so glad that we will all be reunited and especially with you.
