Then, Comes the Morning

He is risen just as He said

The Roman soldiers rolled away the stone

Amazed they didn’t find Christ in the tomb

Only His grave clothes were there

He had risen from death just as He said He would

The grave couldn’t hold Him

He was victorious over death

It had no dominion over Him


The crucified Christ who died at Calvary

This man of sorrows acquainted with your suffering

He was despised and rejected






You can have Christ’s resurrection spirit of joy come alive in you

All it takes is you reaching out


Admitting your need of cleansing from your sin

Accepting the gift that is Love


Praying no matter what trial you’re facing

You will feel a resurrection river of life


Freedom from the bondage of sin

Forever forgiven


Having received Christ’s love

please don’t keep it to yourself

Share it

Sing its message

Let its gift become a living part of you

Transforming you and others

Testifying that every life is a living miracle


Made in God’s image

Matured like fine wine


Then, comes the morning when your sadness will turn into joy

Because you let Jesus into your life

Believe He’ll be with you through all strife

Then, comes the morning when our sorrow will be no more

We’ll be with God forevermore

About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
