Renewal is such a hopeful idea. It embraces the reality of where we are without downplaying what we’re going through, and yet it promises something so much better.
On this Resurrection Day may you be made new again like a bright spring morning who’s winter has long melted away. May God reach into the painful places in your life and renew both your circumstances and your courage to face them. May the cynicism we get from living in a disappointing culture be reborn into innocent hopefulness, like a baby’s guileless wonder at a tiny chick.
May we all experience a taste of resurrection on this shimmering spring day.
Revelation 21:5 “Behold, I am making all things new.”
