The Resurrection

It's every day
I'm in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same
It's every day
I'm in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same

Is it all inside my head?
Is it all inside my head?
I'll view the list
And take my pick
I'll view my faith
And make a choice
'Cause it's nobody else's but mine...

But you are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
Fom behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name...
I can only breathe your name...

So many days within this race
I need the truth
I need some grace
I need the path
To find my place
I need some truth
I need some grace
The part of you

That's part of me
Will never die
Will never leave
And it's nobody else's but mine...


You are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name...
I can only breathe your name...

You'll view the list
And take your pick
You'll view my faith
And make the choice
'Cause it's nobody else's but yours...

And you're in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name...
I can only breathe your name...

Jesus said, “All of those who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and live with them.

Anyone who doesn’t love me will not do what I say. And remember, my words are not my own. This message is from the Father who sent me. I am telling you these things now while I am still with you. But when the Father sends the Counselor as my representative—and by the Counselor I mean the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I myself have told you.

I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love me, you will be very happy for me, because now I can go to the Father, who is greater than I am. I have told you these things before they happen so that you will believe when they do happen.”
~John 14:23-29

The Resurrection

Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb , and I don’t know where they have put him!”

Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple outran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn’t go in. Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus’ head was folded up and lying to the side. Then the other disciple also went in, and he saw and believed—for until then they hadn’t realized that the Scriptures said he would rise from the dead. Then they went home. ~John 20:1-10

Happy Easter!
