Gracevine –Special Edition March, 2020 Monthly Devotional Keeping People Connected to the Glory
Grace family, here are some quotes that I trust will encourage you in these times in which we are now engaged. Remember, we are a family and together we have the assurance that Easter is coming and with it: new hope, new life, and new directions for all of us.
This week, whatever you may be facing, remember that in three short days, the disciples and family of Christ went from hopelessness to hopeful - from devastation to
celebration, from defeat to victory! Let the resurrection joy lift us
from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness. — FLOYD W. TOMKINS
God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ’I love you.’ — BILLY GRAHAM
Because of the cross and the tomb, you have a hope in Christ! Sheri Easter, Eyes Wide Open. Please, Lord, be with me at every moment and in every place. Give me the strength and the courage to live this season faithfully, so that, when Easter comes, I will be able to taste with joy the new life that you have prepared for me.
