See What a Morning!

April 24, 2011

Can you imagine going to the tomb of your dead friend, expecting him to be there…to find out He is risen!?

See what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes,
Tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce Christ is risen!
See God’s salvation plan, wrought in love, Borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man, for He lives:
Christ is risen from the dead!

See Mary weeping, ‘Where is He laid?’
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb;
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name;
It’s the Master, the Lord raised to life again!
The voice that spans the years,
Speaking life, stirring hope,
Bringing peace to us,
Will sound till He appears,
For He lives, Christ is risen from the dead!

One with the Father, Ancient of Days,
Through the Spirit
Who clothes faith with certainty,
Honour and blessing, glory and praise
To the King crowned
With power and authority!
And we are raised with Him,
Death is dead, love has won,
Christ has conquered;
And we shall reign with Him,
For He lives, Christ is risen from the dead!

    I wish I could convey how your blog has impacted me. These last two posts have been very upsetting. In recent months, I’ve wondered about some of the thoughts and quotes you’ve shared on your blog, but these two songs put the nail in the lid. I’m disappointed in the direction that you’re going, and I beg you to reconsider the testimony that you have. I’ve long had your blog in my reader under the missionary tab – as well as your Mission Madagascar one. I’ll no doubt be removing them in the near future. I’d love to see you and your husband make more conservative choices. With concern and prayers, Annan

      Hi, Annan,

      I’m not sure if I know you personally, as my computer shows you’ve commented under a couple of different names over the past few years. Regardless, I do appreciate your prayers and concerns, and hope that you will continue to pray that we will make Biblical choices. Our constant prayer is that we make choices in line with Scripture and the leading of the Spirit through God’s Word. In the past few years, we have found some of our standards and convictions to have been bound, not by the Word, but by the accretions of our culture and pride. Due to the nature of blogging, I’m sure that in some ways what I blog here will reflect that. Since I’m not sure who you are or what your specific background is, it is hard to know what you found offensive, but I trust that we can still rejoice together in the resurrection and in the power of Christ.
