Victory!

It looked like the end. It seemed like defeat. The story paused on Friday with Jesus dead, buried in a tomb. The light of the world slain for us Hanging on the cross He died for us But the story doesn’t end there For death could not hold him down The grave could not contain…

It should have been me

The story of man began in a garden A garden where God and man dwelt together A garden where all was good But all did not remain good For we were made with free will, the freedom to chose And we chose to rebel We chose to ignore God’s commands and go our own way…
