I know Easter is coming because I can feel it. The sun begins to shine more. The trees are trying to prove they’re still alive. Birds reappear. It seems like I can feel the warm breath of life itself slowly settling all around me. It all testifies of Christ, you know. There is no winter that cannot be overcome, and there is no night without a bright and shining morning. No sorrow or pain can remain when the bright light of our Savior shines down upon it. Even death itself is no match for the power of the Son of God.
I heard this song on the radio the other day (I listen to Christian radio in the car), and it just filled me to overflowing with that Easter feeling. I’ve listened to it no less than a dozen times since, and I just need to go buy it.
The song is “Hero” by a group called “Abandon.” Here’s an acoustic version they performed on Air1. Listen to the words and just let it soak in. I promise it feels like Son-shine.
I know it’s early, but Happy Easter.
