We are forgetting our struggles and remembering who we are in Christ. Free and forgiven. Adopted and Loved.

He did what He said he would do.
The day after death.
The disciples were often not quite sure of things. They KNEW who Jesus was but their flesh couldn’t understand what God was doing. They often asked Jesus. “What do you mean?”, “Where are you going?”, “How do we get there, again?”,

And Thank God, we can never be free from God! Can you even imagine?
