Happy Easter! I am eternally grateful for the pain and agony my Savior went through for me on the cross. The story doesn’t end in His death because He rose again three days later and that is the true meaning of Easter. As I reflect on this day and all that it means in the life of a Christ-follower I can’t help but be overwhelmed by His redemption in my own life. My life is a story of transformation that only He can do.
This morning I read through my entire life story that I wrote on my blog back in 2009. It was such a fresh reminder of God’s grace. If you feel like sitting down for a while here is my story… REAL and RAW Part 1. To God be the Glory! Happy Easter!
Have a Blessed Easter, Beckie!
I hadn’t read your story until now. Wow, what a testimony you have. I can’t imagine the pain you endured through school. But what an awesome God we serve. He redeemed your times of pain and heartache and wrong choices. His mercy & grace are limitless and without end. Thank you for sharing. I know you are having an amazing joy-filled Easter because He lives! I just shared my story of a bout with skin cancer- a weird Easter story, but one of His mercy & love.
Amen! Thank you for sharing the TRUE meaning of Easter – not bunnies and chocolate!
Organizing Made Fun
Wonderful, beautiful, and fascinating story/testimony. Praise the Lord for His goodness!
Wow Beckie -just ready your story. I can relate to SEVERAL parts (in 9th grade an awful rumor was started about me and it was horrible – SAD FACE). On the positive side – camp was always the place I encountered God. Now that I’m a youth pastor I see the value of getting away from the world at camp and see kid’s lives literally change in front of my eyes. God is so good, thank you for sharing!
Thank you for reading! I, too am in ministry. We were in YM for 9 years and now my hubby is an executive pastor at a church here in Indy. I love the camp experience and hope to one day relive it through the eyes of my children as well.
THANK YOU for posting a link to your testimony! I would never have thought to look for it. :^) God is so good. I really enjoyed reading it although it made me cry in several parts. I loved reading how you and your husband got together, and your honeymoon story was hilarious. Happy Easter!
