The other night, I watched the sunset, it was breath-takingly beautiful . The sky was a beautiful shade of pale pink mixed with a pale light blue that was reflecting off the water. And the sun was hot pink. Its times when I’m watching the sun rise or set or star gazing, when I should be in bed, that there is doubt in my mind that God could possibly be dead. Who else could have arranged the stars in the sky or taught the sun where to set?? Its amazing to think the Holy one that set the stars would love a sinner like me.
I am only human and make mistakes, more often than I want to admit. I have sinned and felt I did not deserve God’s love or grace. Romans 3:23 (one of my faves) says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” We are all sinners. No one is perfect!! We are only made perfect by the gift of the cross.
I was channel surfing, and happened by chance to stop on “The Cross:Billy Grahams Message to America,” because I recognized Lecrae (I posted the link and every one who reads this blog needs to watch it!!) It was half way through when I stop on it, but I am so happy I did. It was so touching and by the time the credits rolled I had tears streaming down my face. It spoke straight to my heart and the situation in my life. One of the verses Mr. Graham mentioned was John 14:6 (one of my faves too), ‘Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’ Once you believe what Christ did on the cross for you and accept him, you become a new person. A person with a living Savior. Most people just focus on what Christ did on the cross, but three days later he rose from the dead!!! Yes, you read that correctly. When Jesus rose from the dead, He conquered death, which means we are given eternal life when we accept him. We are given the gift of life eternal when we accept him.
That night I sat staring up at the stars, I sang “My Redeemer Lives”(one of my faves) by Nicole C. Mullen. And I would like to close with a quote from the song.
“And the same gentle hands
That hold me when I’m broken
They conquer death to bring me victory”
