Death Exchanged for Life

“All our hope has been fulfilled, death exchanged for life. Perfect love has been reveled, our God is alive.” 

Something that I’ve been thinking about a lot this week is if all our hope has been fulfilled and perfect love has been reveled, then why don’t I live like this is true? I tend to let the problems in my life overshadow this very important truth. But I shouldn’t. I am incredibly blessed with way more than I deserve. 

This past week has been rough. I don’t know if it was the weather, the fact that I’m still trying to recover from being sick, or what. Most of the week I just felt like I was living in a fog. I really couldn’t articulate how that felt until last night. Some of my friends and I were out for First Friday and we came upon an art gallery in a moving truck which is rather unconventional but a pretty neat concept. The art showcased all black and white photography and all pieces were rather bleak. But one picture that captured my attention was of a large tree, no leaves, encased in fog. And that was it. That’s how I felt most of the week. Thankfully, I think I’m starting to see the sun peeking through the clouds. I just have to remember that since my God is alive, I have eternal hope.
