Every Sunday, I take a break from writing about Work, Life, and Changing the World. Instead, I write about my imperfect understanding of God’s perfect love as my personal mission to spread His word and His love and to make a difference. You can read more Mission posts here.
You have been working so hard for this. And yet, nothing seems happening.
It seems as if you're not getting any closer to that dream job, to that promotion, to that business success, or to that special someone.
You might already be on the verge of giving up. With just a little more push, you will fall off the cliff.
Today is Easter Sunday. It's the greatest reminder that your breakthrough is coming.
You have already gone through your Good Friday and your Black Saturday. You have already hit your rock bottom!
Today is the day of your resurrection. Today is your day of breakthrough!
You are due for a breakthrough! But, you have to believe that it will happen. You have to believe in your resurrection. You have to believe in your redemption!
And you have to show this belief through your action. You have to show this faith by pressing on. You have to prove your faith, not to God, but to yourself, by filling today, tomorrow, and all the remaining days of your life with expectancy.
You have to expect that your breakthrough is already on its way.
The resurrection is the greatest mystery of our faith. We were not able to witness it. Yet, we believe.
The same goes for your dreams. You may not see them yet, you may not understand how they will come into fruition, but you have to believe, you have to keep acting, and you have to press on with a lot of confidence.
Have faith! You have been working so hard for this. You are due for a breakthrough.
On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.” So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb. They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first; he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in. When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place. Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed. For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead. — John 20: 1-9
Here's a song that may help you reflect on God's word and your breakthrough:
