Read this week’s thought for the week.

Have you ever had an experience which turned your life upside-down, and made everything better in an instant? Not necessarily happier, or even easier, but better.

I had it recently, the offer of a new job and a new country.

My life, my expectations have been flipped on their head.

It may not be an easy route, it seems to be somewhat stressful – but I am convinced that it is right, and will be better.

It was like that on the first Easter Day.

The broken people who went to the tomb to pay their respects to Jesus had their lives turned upside down in an instant.

Jesus who was dead was brought again to life; “he is not here, he is risen!”

Life became better, filled with hope and joy. Not perfect, but fulfilled.

May you know the resurrection life of Jesus this Easter and always.
