The Easter season is here...

The season brings many thoughts to my mind...

Just where am I going to find 2 pairs of black dress pants for the boys?
What about white shoes for the girls?
Oh, wait, I need something to wear too!?!
Filling four Easter baskets is expensive!
These have been the thoughts in my silly head for the past few days. But then came this song.
This song I heard a few weeks ago that just spoke directly to my heart. This song has caused me to remember what Easter is all about.
It's a song about redemption. I looked up the word redemption today and read the following:
the act of redeeming; deliverance; rescue; salvation
If you or I made a list of the things we need to be delivered from, rescued from, saved from, I wonder how long that list would be? I know that my list would be a lengthy list of all of the things I struggle with, the parts of my life I wish were different, the choices I've made that I regret, the things I've said that I wish I could take back, the fear that grips my heart...oh this list could go on and on.
The greatest thing about my list though? God knows each and every thing on my list. He knows it and he loves me anyway. The same can be said for you, for all of us. For each and every one who accepts God as their savior, He willingly accepts you no matter if your list is numbered 1-10 or 1-100!
His perfect love redeems every last piece of you. Once this happens you can let go of the world's desire for you to be perfect. For God takes your brokenness and in His time makes all things good according to His purpose.
This is what Easter needs to be about in my heart. God sent His son to die on the cross for me, for you, and by doing so He redeemed us all.
So, the song. You can listen to it here (don't forget to turn on your volume).
Ephesians 1:7
In him we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins,
in accordance with the riches of God's grace


  1. Meg, That was very well said! Thanks for sharing and reminding us all! -Chris S.

  2. Meg, we were given some statistics today about Easter. 4/10 thought Easter had to do with Christ, Another 4/10 2 of them thought it was Christ's birthday and the other two thought it was all about the bunny and candy!!! We have our work cut out for us to share the good news and let people know they can be redeemed through Christ. Thanks for helping others know the real reason for Easter and the song is great. We saw them in concert and that was one of the songs they sang----it was beautiful!Heather
