You are like music
when you walk in a room
a brilliant song that lights
up the darkness
and if you stay long enough
a symphony will be written
in your name.
So…stay awhile and
let’s dance in tune
to this beautiful interlude
you are my song
I’ve written a million times
and if you really want to know
you are the music
in my dreams
that plays on and on
in my mind.
God created us in His image. He’s molding us into who He created us to be.
What image are you reflecting?
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:13-16 ESV
I can’t imagine having watched Jesus die, and grieving while not understanding that He would rise again.
We need to rise up on Easter and share His story.
There are those who know nothing of Jesus –
I can’t imagine!
There are those who believe false truths – nothing but the blood of Jesus saves us. We claim Him as our Lord and Savior and we are set free!
There are those that don’t have access to His word – we need to be bold and share this great love – His love.
Jesus has risen it’s our bliss…because of Him we live!
Because of Him, our reservation in Heaven is made. Our sins are indeed forgiven, and may we forgive those who have trespassed against us.
Our names are etched in the palms of His hands.
May we have bold faith, eyes to see, and may we speak eloquently on His behalf.
May we embrace others who do not know – not just on resurrection Sunday – but may we shout out His glory every day from this day forward.
We are forgiven- our debt has been paid – lay it at the cross. Let’s live the way He intended us to – Free.
Nothing but Jesus.
Have a blessed Easter.
I watched you
as I gasped for air –
and there you were
into my hands and feet.
Eye to eye you searched me
for the truth, yet
you remained silent.
It’s not your fault!
I arranged each star in the sky,
call them all by name, and yet…
you still didn’t believe me-
that I am the Son of God.
Each searing strike of your
hammers head, pounds into
my feet and hands;
it pains me as much as it pains you.
I feel your remorse.
I feel your doubt and shame
yet I’m willing to take it all for you.
You pull the rope that draws
my cross – far into the sky…
even as I hang above you,
I remain faithful – I ask for
my fathers forgiveness for you.
In the ninth hour I cry out
“Eli God, my God, why
have you forsaken me?”
You do nothing except
laugh at me and sponge
vinegar into my mouth,
you push a spear into my side!
I pray for your forgiveness-
it is finished…
but, I’m not done,
and I will return
for all of my people.
Soon you will not question
you’ll know, you’ll see
I am the Son of God.
You’ll never think about breathing the same, ever again…
Breathe in and out, really feel the depth of the inhale sink deep into your soul. It’s kind of a funny thing when we think about breathing, you realize just how intricate God designed us to be.
Each breath is a “love note” from Jesus to our bodies. When we breathe in, we breathe in all the love Jesus is sending us. Sometimes I want to keep it all inside…but, I’ll pass out😀.
Breathing in and out and really listening to each breath, can help us to slow the pace, and really meditate on all the love Jesus sends us in a day. How lovely it is, when we exhale and send that love out in our own “love notes” to the world.
We are all breathing to our own pace. Some of us are so hurried that we are constantly gasping for air…today, breathe in God’s love slowly, really let these breaths sink in, and then exhale.
All day long God blesses us with “His love notes” of breathing in. Today, breathe in deep and on the exhale send “love notes” back to God, and say to Him “I love you too.”
He loves you more than you know – really let His love sink in during this Holy Week.
Let it sink in to your soul…He loved you so much – He died on the cross so you could breathe and live.
This week renew your breaths of love for Him – breathe in His love and send it back to Him in a giant exhale.
Relax – He has you today and everyday – He loved you to the cross and back!
