How one's life can change in a year.
I learned a valuable lesson this year, trust in Jesus.
Having to come to the reality that I didn't trust Him, was one of the most painful moments of my life. I was holding back. I was afraid.
This Resurrection Sunday, and unbelievable joy has overwhelmed my heart. I feel such a deep peace and comfort in Jesus. I love Him, and coming to grips of the idea that He suffered for me, is life changing.
I had heard all the right words. I had heard the message a thousand times. But coming to grips with it all, and truly feeling the impact of Christ's sacrifice, took me a while. I didn't really believe He could love me that much. Why would He die for me? I was a small person on this large planet, falling into sin so easily. Forgetting his sacrifice. Why would he ever die for me?
He loved me. He, the maker of the universe, loved me!
This realization fully sank into me, and I felt the weight of my fears fall away. I could lean on Him! He would take my burden's and I didn't have to be afraid or hold anything back. I could put my trust in Jesus.
This Resurrection Sunday, I look forward to celebrating with a full heart. Having peace and joy pour forth from me as I celebrate the love my Savior has for me.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
