Coming back to life. Reminds me of what every follower of Christ is celebrating today and everyday from the moment we knew beyond a doubt that our lives would never be the same after that encounter with Jesus. A change that came over us that is as clear as these dead looking branches coming to life in spring. No more feeling dead inside, no more needing something or someone to fill the emptiness, the loneliness. No more fear of death. No more trying so hard to please everyone, no more pretending on the outside while dying on the inside. Freedom from the prison of constant fear and striving.

To truly know that if I lost everything, I’d still have everything. Jesus, my everything. It’s a radical change, a radical mindset and freely available to everyone, without discrimination.

Happy resurrection day!
