Hello, my friends! Easter is once more upon us. It is the approximate anniversary of our Savior’s death, His resurrection, and His victory. The Lord has lately been teaching me that we as Christians have nothing to fear because He has overcome all evil and death. In John 16:33, Jesus says, “I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart. I have overcome the world.” Recently, I read both Foxe’s Book of Martyrs and The Hiding Place; in both books, believers are hurt, ridiculed, and persecuted– they constantly “have trouble.” But oh how they trust and rejoice in God! As the old hymn says, ’tis so sweet to trust in Jesus. In Him, we may have peace. Take heart, because death is a defeated foe, because Christ has overcome the world!
Here is my Easter dress that I made. I tried to make it look like this one.
