John 11:25,26 “Jesus said to her (Martha), I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in ME will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?” (NASB)

After winter’s freezing weather has turned my flower plants brown, it always amazes me to see new green leaves emerging at the base of new growththe plant in the spring. What appears to be dead surprises me with evidence of new life. 

Like freezing weather, cancer took the physical life of my husband and he died in my arms. I wondered how I would continue living. It felt like my heart had suffered an amputation. I leaned on God when I did not feel like I could stand, by reading the Bible and praying every day. Jesus is my gentle Shepherd…patient with my tears and yet nudging me onward with tasks of showing love to others such as cooking for the homeless, teaching Vacation Bible School, walking a dog for a veteran, and sharing His comfort with those who experience grief. It is HIS presence with me that has enabled me to go on. The comfort that life is not over, it just changes. It is awesome to know that I will see my husband again in heaven some day because he asked Jesus to be his Savior (and I have too).

But for now, I am here to tell you this good news…Jesus is alive and well and just waiting for you to ask Him into your heart. And if you already believe in Him, you have HIS Word that HE will give you a life worth living…an abundant life. 

How has God shown you miraculous new life?
