He is not here; He is Risen

This last week I was surrounded and reminded of a time not long ago when I was literally surround by hate. The man I was in a relationship was abusive in every way possible. There were nights that I was physically and emotion abused for hours at a time and I had never felt more alone and more surrounded by the love of my Redeemer. How could he do this to me when I had loved him so much? At a time when I wished he would die, the Savior saved me from my own hate. It was a painful and emotional journey to my Lord but He had come and I was not alone. I can't say that I believe the LDS church is true but I can and I will shout it to the world that I know my Redeemer lives. I know that He walked alone so I would not have to do so. I know that He loves me, I know that He died for my sins. And I know that He rose from the grave that I would not have to know the pain of death or the pain of separation from my Heavenly Father. Jesus the Christ died for my sins and my hate that I may be redeemed and saved and brought to the true love of Christ.

Happy Easter to us all! He is not here, He is Risen!
