“Wonderful, merciful Savior, precious Redeemer and Friend; who would have thought that a Lamb could rescue the souls of men”.

This song by Selah resonate within me as I reflect on this Easter season.  An Easter season that found me caught up in the busyness of life.   A short trip, a work project and family matters took my time and attention and left me depleted and in need of rescue.

When I did find quiet moments, I found my Merciful Savior and Friend waiting with open arms.   As I sit beholding Him, the cares and concerns of the world drop away and I am “reset” by his loving embrace.

I wonder…”Why am I so quick to forget the healing and hope found there”?

The Easter season brings the hope of renewal.  Renewal available to me each new morning from the Lamb who rescues my soul and gives me His rest.  O Lord remind me again, to come….. “In the morning I will lift my voice, in the morning I will lift my prayer to you and eagerly wait”.  Wait for my Redeemer to renew me again.
