Resurrection Garden

Just as the first Adam "died" in a garden, so the last Adam was made alive in a garden; where Adam "fell," Jesus "rose." ~Christian Reader

My Resurrection Garden was inspired from here.

My sweet friend Carol shared her daily devotional. It spoke deeply to me and I just have to pass it along....

Arise shine; for thy light is come, and the Glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. Isa 1:1
"The call comes on this My Day for all who love Me, to arise from earth-bands, from sin,and sloth and depression, distrust, fear, all that hinders the Risen Life. To arise to Beauty, to Holiness, to Joy, to Peace, to work inspired by Love and Joy, to rise from death to Life.Remember that death was the last enemy I destroyed. So with death My Victory was complete. You have nothing then to fear. Sin, too, is conquered and forgiven, as you live and move and work with Me. All that depresses you, all that you fear, are powerless to harm you. They are but phantoms. The real forces I conquered in the wilderness, the Garden of Gethsemane, on the Cross, in the Tomb.Let nothing hinder your Risen Life. "Risen with Christ," said my servant Paul. Seek to know more and more of that Risen Life. That is the life of conquest, Of that Risen Life was it truly said: "I live yet not I, but Christ liveth in me." Fear and despair and tears come as you stand by the empty Tomb. "They have taken away My Lord and I know not where they have laid Him."Rise from your fear and go out into the sunlight to meet me, your Risen Lord. Each day will have much in it that you will meet either in the spirit of the tomb, or in the spirit of the Resurrection. Deliberately choose the one and reject the other."

~From the book titled God Calling
