Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!
Isaiah 6:8

I don't really talk about my religion too often up here because not every reader that comes here believes in what I believe in. I'm one for being sensitive to other people and their religion because I also believe we can all learn something from each other, but more than often we get caught up in differences too much to learn those lessons. So I tend to not mention it as much, you know that whole respecting one another thing. I just want to say whether you are Muslim, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist or even Christian, I have respect for everyone and I take lessons away from every religion when it comes to self-growth, because at the end of the day, we are all human, and we need one another to survive on this planet.

But here today, on this post, it's not about everyone, and it's not about being quiet, it's about talking about the one person that has never let me down in life, The Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know there are a lot of things that I do that are against a lot The Lord preaches about not doing, and I conscientiously know this, but he still accepts me. That's what makes him so great, he understands each and every one of us and he puts us on paths that grow us as humans and tests us in every way imaginable. That's what a lot of people don't understand, life is a lesson, when you hear that saying "things happen for a reason", it's because it's happening to make you a greater person. Some of us go through things that you can't even fathom, and some go through things that may seem minuscule to those who think their problem is greater, but at the end each problem is for that particular person and it's not for us to judge them based off what they are going through.

Easter is about recognizing all Jesus gave up for us so that we could have a better life. The world at that time was a very, very dark and cruel place, and there were all kinds of mayhem and unrest. Jesus came through in a time when the world was unsure of itself and slipping away towards something that was likely going to destroy it. He saw this, gave us glimpses of what it's like to be unselfish, loving, nurturing, and just kind towards each other. When that was found out that such a man existed, you know how it goes, the ones in charge became scared and didn't know what to do. So they did the only thing they could do, they tried to destroy the man and the image of him in order to remain in power. Now we all know the story of Jesus long march to the cross, you may have even seen it on the Passion of Christ, which by the way I could barely watch.

Easter isn't meant to highlight that, it's meant to highlight the fact that he came back, and he came back for us. Jesus is the light in my life, I know I'm not perfect, and I know I stumble a lot in life, but he's always there to remind me that there is love out there for me and that he is putting me through what I'm going through because it's meant to make me stronger, not weaker. People don't realize that, like I said before, he gives us lessons to make us greater humans. The beauty in struggle, pain, lost, and despair is coming out of it with the lesson learned and the L turned into a W because you refused to give up on a dream that you want more than life itself.

So when I celebrate Easter, it's with the thoughts of this great man giving it all up because he believes in each and every single one of us to make life that much better for not only ourselves, but the people we come into contact with. That's what I wish was spread around more, just learning how to be better human's and loving each other like we a supposed to be because of one man's greatest act of unselfishness. That's what Easter is for me, along with seeing my family and enjoying the presence of the word in my soul. I mean the great food doesn't hurt the cause either lol.

But that's why Easter is important to me, what does Easter mean to you if you celebrate it? Leave it in the comments below.

Until next time guys, and I hope you enjoy your Easter Sunday!
