My Redeemer

But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and that he will stand upon the earth at last. -- Job 10:25

Today, I am thinking about how glad I am to have a Redeemer. Not only has Christ conquered death and redeemed my soul, but because of that, he can redeem any situation I face. There is no pain, no anxiety, no weakness, no bitterness, and no fear that he can not ultimately recover and use for his glory. He takes horrible things and turns them into something beautiful... valuable... honorable. On a day when my favorite person in the whole world is too tired to help the kids hunt for eggs and too sick to enjoy Easter dinner, I am finding strength in my Redeemer. Happy Easter, everyone.

  1. We just got home from your mom's house... and in the car I was just praying for you as I was listening to a song which quotes, "He will keep in perfect peace those who are stayed on Him" (Is. 26:3)
    Lord Jesus, as Cara keeps her mind stayed on you, her Redeemer, may You keep her in perfect peace. Lord of Peace, Prince of Peace, pour over Reese and Cara in mercy, grace and presence. Amen!

  2. I love you friend. My family and I are praying for you guys daily. You have such an amazing outlook that can only come from our God!

    Lots of Love,

    BTW, thanks for the commenting worked!


    Hope this song encourages you in your faith and our amazing God we love and serve. I'll continue praying. Love to you all!

  4. Love your blog, Cara. Our prayers are with your family during Reese's treatment. Our Bible study group always includes all of you in our prayers.

  5. Thanks for the link, Michelle. I haven't heard that song in a loooong time. Thanks for reminding me about it, and for the prayers!
