Good Friday thoughts

Personally this is an emotional day for me. A day when I am reflecting whether I have lived a life worthy of Him.

As I think and reflect – my mind travels to that scene on the Calvary…
When I gaze upon the cross
I see the thorns on His crown
And the nails in His wrists
I wonder who put Him there
Then I look at my hand
And I see the hammer in my grip

Then God reminded me – nothing I had done made Him love me less and nothing I can do will make Him love me more – His love for me had always been unconditional, had never changed and will never change. He had loved me from the beginning and He will love me to the end.

As I was reading online last night, I stumbled upon this song “You Love Me Anyway” by Sidewalk Prophets and these words captured me:
The question was raised
As my conscience fell
A silly, little lie
It didn’t mean much
But it lingers still
In the corners of my mind
Still you call me to walk
On the edge of this world
To spread my dreams and fly
But the future’s so far
My heart is so frail
I think I’d rather stay inside
But You love me anyway
It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known
Yes You love me anyway

With that my spirit was lifted up once again, as my heart warmed to the embrace of His love.

Lord, thank You! Thank You for Your love, thank You for setting me free to soar.
