DEVOTIONAL (March 11 – April 1, 2018): “Overjoyed”

by Lauren Muzyka, Executive Director, Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Verses:

“When they looked up,
they saw that the stone had been rolled back;
it was very large.
On entering the tomb they saw a young man
sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe,
and they were utterly amazed.
He said to them, ‘Do not be amazed!
You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified.
He has been raised; he is not here.
Behold the place where they laid him.
But go and tell his disciples and Peter,
‘He is going before you to Galilee;
there you will see him, as he told you.””

— Mark 16: 4-7

Reflection: When the idea of Sidewalk Advocates for Life was put on our hearts, we had no idea what this leap of faith might bring — but that’s the fun part with God!  He tugs …and we respond, many times, without any preview of what to expect.

And yet, here we are, rejoicing in almost 4,000 precious babies saved, along with so many other amazing blessings!

Our Lord tells us that we who rejoice in Him — in his ultimate victory over sin and death — should take that JOY, exult and trust in Him, and run to follow wherever He leads so we may partake of the many blessings He wants to give us.  He always has good things in store!

How many times have we been invited to the feast and missed out because we were afraid or refused to say YES?  And yet, we know that God will never invite us somewhere where he cannot transform, bless, and bring victory.

There is more work to do: More soil to till, more harvest to reap!  Together, let’s move forward in faith, expectantly waiting to see what other blessings God wants to bring us!

Call to Action: As a part of our family and community of faith, please join us in a prayer of thanksgiving for all He’s done.  A grateful heart opens us to new, amazing blessings in the future!

Then, please consider joining us on our next big webcast event this Thursday night, ENDING ABORTION Through the Power of Love, where you can learn how to keep the life-saving moment going!
