Guten morgen, everyone!
This morning, for me as a Christian, is the morning that Christ rose from the grave. He was in the grave for three days, and on the third day, He defeated death. Now, He’s in heaven with God, after visiting his disciples, who were hiding–frightened–in a room. They feared that they too would be killed. Jesus was an inspirational man, the Word made flesh.
Easter morning is an important day for me as a Lutheran. While I don’t wear my faith on my sleeve, I do feel moved to express my faith in this blog. I’m not a zealot, either, but tend to think that I do good works through trying to be a good person. I do my best to be accepting and loving of all people, even people that I don’t agree with. I’m not perfect–I do get angry, and I do dislike certain people for what they aren’t doing for this country. (In short, I’m a liberal Democrat, and Donald Trump isn’t my president.) But my job in that department is to vote, which is what I’ve been doing.
I try not to be political or come off as overly religious. I’m a normal, nerdy woman who loves to expand my mind by reading and writing. I actually love indie rap, and one of my favorite groups is Doomtree. Dessa and P.O.S. are good rappers, too. So’s Guante. I love Harry Potter.
As a Lutheran, I tend to be more quiet about my faith. But I do appreciate what my faith does for me. My connection to God reminds me that I’m not alone, especially since I have severe depression and some anxiety. I need to be reminded by my pastors that I’m forgiven for my sins, that I’m forgiven for my actions, thoughts, and deeds. I can start over. I can start fresh. I don’t need to dwell on something small that I did last Tuesday. (Although, I do dwell on the past when I’m down.)
In short, He is risen and I’m grateful for it. I’m glad that He came to Earth.
He is risen!
