Happy Easter, Friend!! ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi, Friend!

I hope you've been doing well.

Late Easter post for you today. ๐Ÿ˜

What does Easter mean to me? I'll relate it to the physical cancer journey more specifically in just a minute (see more bolded words below), but first, I have to explain the spiritual part, which comes first. I celebrate Easter because I have hope and life on this earth and after I die, unless I'm wrong and I have believed in vain (1 Corinthians 15). I believe because Jesus died on the cross according to the Scriptures (Isaiah 53:5-12), He was buried for three days according to the Scriptures (Matthew 12:40) and that He rose again according to the Scriptures (Psalm 16:10).

Here are some more verses that outline the message of Easter...

Romans 3:23 says "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" - we all have sinned and fall short of God's perfect standard. That's a "duh" to me, I know I have and always will fall very short of perfection!

Romans 6:23 also says, "The wages (payment) of sin is death." God has determined that death is the penalty for sin, meaning separation from God here on earth experientially and complete separation from God after physical death forever in a place called hell, in which there is "weeping and gnashing of teeth" (mentioned 7 times in the Bible, including Matthew 8:12).

HOWEVER the second half of Romans 6:23 gives us the GREAT news of the gospel: "but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

All we have to do is call on or believe in Him (Jesus) (Acts 2:21) and we are saved from our sins and the penalty of death. Hallelujah. Have you done that yet? ๐Ÿ™

Now, bringing it back to cancer, what does this mean for me and my cancer journey?

It means that as a gift of God's grace I (and you if you believe) get all of His wonderful promises in the Bible, upon which I can't live without to live a healthy life spiritually --> mentally --> emotionally --> and therefore physically.

The following are a few of my favorites that I cling to often in the times that I struggle...

God is with me (Matthew 28:20) no matter where I go, even when I sin or feel like I'm in complete darkness (Psalm 139:7-12), He will never leave me nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5), and in heaven there will be no more crying, pain or sorrow (Revelation 21:4).

All of these things I talk in about in the I AM HealingStrong podcast I was interviewed for along with others like Tasha Layton, Tim Timmons, Katy Nichole (whose names you may recognize from Christian music circles) as well as HealingStrong founder Suzy Griswold, cancer survivor, author and coach Chris Wark, HealingStrong HEAL Bible study author Cheryl Collins and the wonderful podcast hosts Jim Mann and Ally Powell! Here is the link for my interview called Finding Your Own Pathway to Healing below linked in the photo below.

I hope you had a wonderful week, , and I hope to talk to you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

All my best,

Bailey ๐ŸŒท

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 "For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."
