Easter Sunday - Cardboard Testimonies

On Easter Sunday I was blessed to be able to share part of my testimony at church! I did what's called a cardboard testimony along with about 20 other people!  

This was the front of my cardboard 


And this was the back! 




The service at church was so encouraging. Others who shared their testimony had incredible stories. Some had lost a child, lost their legs, overcame addiction, overcame an illness, lost their home to a tornado, were going to get divorced but then God healed their marriage. 

The message was that the worst situation is not the end. The worst situation was that Jesus died. He was crucified for crimes he didn't commit. There was no hope. He was dead. But then on the 3rd day, He rose! There was hope! The worst situation did not win. Satan did not win! So when the worst things happen in our lives, we know it's not the end of our story. 

Because Jesus lives, I know that one day I will be healed. God's timing is perfect and I'll keep running the race, even while I wait. No matter how long it takes. 6 years has nothing on eternity in Heaven!

After everyone had shared their testimony, we sang the song I Will Rise. This has been my favorite song since I got sick. The first time I heard it was one night after I had gotten home from the hospital right after I was diagnosed with Lyme. It's been my favorite song. I'm not sure that there was a dry eye during the Easter Service! God is so good! Here are the lyrics to I Will Rise. It goes with my favorite verse, "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever" Psalm 73:26 


"There's a peace I've come to know 
Though my heart and flesh may fail 
There's an anchor for my soul 
I can say 'It is well' 


Jesus has overcome 
And the grave is overwhelmed 
The victory is won 
He is risen from the dead 

[Chorus:] 
And I will rise when He calls my name 
No more sorrow, no more pain 
I will rise on eagles' wings 
Before my God fall on my knees 
And rise 
I will rise 

There's a day that's drawing near 
When this darkness breaks to light 
And the shadows disappear 
And my faith shall be my eyes 

Jesus has overcome 
And the grave is overwhelmed 
The victory is won 
He is risen from the dead 

[Chorus:] 
And I will rise when He calls my name 
No more sorrow, no more pain 
I will rise on eagles' wings 
Before my God fall on my knees 
And rise 
I will rise 

And I hear the voice of many angels sing, 
"Worthy is the Lamb" 
And I hear the cry of every longing heart, 
"Worthy is the Lamb" 

[Chorus:] 
And I will rise when He calls my name 
No more sorrow, no more pain 
I will rise on eagles' wings 
Before my God fall on my knees 
And rise 
I will rise"

  1. Sound therapy is popularizing these days because it is a very efficient and 100% natural therapy which has no side effects. Sound therapy can not only be used in such cases but can heal Lyme disease, heart troubles etc. There is no doubt the power of Sound Healing and positive thinking is astonishing.
