I’m Stumped by #3

Prompt #3

It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

The world is powered by passionate people, powerful ideas, and fearless action. What’s one strong belief you possess that isn’t shared by your closest friends or family? What inspires this belief, and what have you done to actively live it? (posted by Buster Benson)

 

 

This one stumped me. I cannot think of any belief that I hold very dear that isn’t shared by at least a couple of people close to me.

Is that good or bad?

Either way, it has me thinking. Mulling over what I believe and why. Are my beliefs simply inherited? Or do I know why I believe things I believe?

This sounds like a comp-out but it’s really not, I’ve been thinking about it all day and drawn a blank.

Still, enjoying this set of exercises. It’s not too late for you to jump in!

Happy Day!

The great gift of Easter is hope –

Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God,

in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.

Basil C. Hume

*****

This song is one of my new favorites, we sung it at church this morning and I wanted to share it with you.

*****

The greatest day in history, Death is beaten
You have rescued me
Sing it out Jesus is alive
The empty cross, The empty grave
Life eternal You have won the day
Shout it out Jesus is alive!
He’s alive!


Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same
Forever I am changed!

When I stand, in that place
Free at last, meeting face to face
I am Yours Jesus You are mine
Endless joy, perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease
Celebrate Jesus is alive!
He’s alive!

Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same
Forever I am changed!


Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me
Oh what a glorious day

What a glorious name


~Happy Day, by Tim Hughes~
