Hey Moms! TGIF, and a good one it is indeed. As I begin this long weekend with my family and friends, I am reminded of the sobering events of this all-important day. At first thought, my heart aches for the unspeakable torture Jesus willingly suffered for me. How can my human-self understand such a super-human act? Why would Jesus pay for all of my sins, past, present, and future with his own life? What does that really even mean? Well, I've discovered the answer in just one word: LOVE. Mind-boggling, super natural, wondrous love! A love so divine yet so hard to comprehend. In fact, His love for you and for me is so great, it offers complete forgiveness and an open door to heaven if we put our trust in Him.
It is by faith alone that each of us can possibly accept the events we remember today. Because of the cross, my sins, and I mean every single one of them are forgiven, forgotten, forever. Whoa! Thank you seems too minimal a response, right? Well, let not your heart be troubled. Accept His love-gift and commit to share it with others.
My prayer for today is that all of us moms will love with a love that was more than love. Now off to eat too many jelly beans!
