God invented holidays as a way to remember, teach, and pause. Easter is the richest week of the year, and we have compiled all of our posts that discuss how you can make this season come alive for you and your family.
Don’t try to do all of these things this year (goodness knows we don’t have time to do that either!), but let God lead you to pick one or two that are just exactly what you need.

Good Friday: I Thirst
The thirst we feel is a spiritual thirst! This thirst is no less real than our physical thirst.
God put a thirst for Himself inside every heart – a longing that has been unquenched since Eden.
The next time you are thirsty or hungry or lustful or restless, don’t turn to Facebook or calories. Turn your face to heaven and say “Abba, I thirst! I am thirsty, and only you can satisfy me!” God has not forsaken you, and in him you will find the comfort that you seek.
Remember friends, your suffering is real. Your longing is real. Your thirst is real. Without your spiritual thirst, you would be as good as dead! But do not be deceived – you thirst for God! Reach out to Him, and in Him you will find what you need.
