When life feels like it is in shambles, when it feels broken, tattered, and torn, when we feel perched on the edge wondering what is next, if there is a tomorrow… hope is always cradled within, resting secure, held by love, held by the promise, of new life. Hope breaks free from the limitations of life, inviting us to rise up, to be renewed, for we walk with our Savior into the resurrected life.
God of Easter,
your love never dies
leading us through the valley of death
into an authentic new life.
As we begin the festival of Easter
may our hearts know
they are always cradled
where hope lives
and that we too
rise to new life
for your love
holds us secure
