God, we know that you are the source of all things and therefore all things are good. You are the light that overcomes the darkness therefore all darkness must indeed come to an end. You are the unfailing hope of all Nations and therefore all nations will return to You. You were vindicated on the first day of the week therefore on this day You are victorious. But how, oh Lord?
Though we do not understand your victory and it seems untrue at times we choose to embrace it. We choose to live in and as new creation finding good in all things, taking in the new breath of life; the Holy Spirit, and celebrating the present Kingdom of God. We find rest in you not so we might be revitalized in order to continue working but we rest in the work that has already been finished. Mysterious as it may be; Yours is the victory and the reward of that victory belongs in every corner of the earth. We will follow You in taking it there. Amen.
