Rising from the dead takes time and work. It’s more difficult than one can imagine; and believe me- I imagine a great deal. I have been lying in my grave for so long I had almost given up all hope of a resurrection. Living “on the brink” and staying in the coffin is not all it’s cracked up to be. I still take my shoes off and let the grass blades peek up through my toes. Ahhhh…. feels so good. But wait. What happens when someone comes along and mows the grass? Well, you find out the answer the hard way. It’s still excruciating. It still makes you feel as if someone just spun you around while playing “pin the tale on the donkey”. You’re dizzy. You’re disoriented. You wonder if you are back in the coffin. Well, “I say, Nail the coffin shut.” Feel the pain. Absorb the blow. But stay risen. You are so much stronger than you could ever imagine.
