I am overcome with emotion today. I had the first few quiet moments in weeks today. A few stolen minutes to think and reflect, but now the tears will not stop flowing from my eyes. I seem to be experiencing Easter a day late today. We had the eggs, the church service, the meal yesterday, but today I sought the face of God. The God who allowed his son to be sacrificed for me, and the son who lovingly went to the cross to pay the price. As I try to wrap my earthly brain around this, the only way I can attempt to, is by relating it to my life. I too have lost a son, but if I had been able to save him, I would have at all costs. I could not have turned my face and allowed him to die. I cannot fathom the horror. Not only did Jesus die, but in such a brutal manner, for a crime he did not commit. He experienced pain, far worse than delivering a child who is still. His death, surrounded by hate, was done in love for me, and for you. Such powerful love.
(The first three videos were taken from a daily bible study that I do via a free app on my phone, or you can go to the website. I can not say enough good things about If:Equip. http://www.ifequip.com/
Ask me more about it and I would love to share. I ask me more about Jesus, I'd love to share that even more.)
I am Jackie.
