I haven’t felt prepared for Easter this year. More truthfully, I haven’t done much to prepare for Easter this year.
But yesterday in the car when I accidentally put my phone on shuffle a song came on that I hadn’t listen to in years. As I listened to it, I realized that it was the perfect meditation for Easter weekend.
May we be the Easter People today and every day.
How Deep by Stephen Altrogge
You were broken that I might be healed
You were cast off that I might draw near
You were thirsty that I might come drink
Cried out in anguish that I might sing
How deep is Your love
How high and how wide is Your mercy
How deep is Your grace
Our hearts overflow with praise
You knew darkness that I might know light
Wept great tears that mine might be dried
Stripped of glory that I might be clothed
Crushed by Your Father to call me Your own
