LOOK TO THE CROSS

Our days on earth are really very few when you think about it.  As I grow older and closer to the end of mine, I’ve begun to realize that.  It seems only yesterday that the ground was covered with a white blanket of snow and today it’s encased in green.  The seasons slip from one to another like a train roaring through the country side.

Because time is so short, we need to make the best possible use of it.  Each moment is a gift directly from God.  If we were to get what we deserve, we’d all be facing His wrath and damnation, but because of His great love, we’ve been given freedom instead –  eternal life without pain, worry, fear, depression, anxiety.

I’ve been trying to distance myself from the news of the day – not because I don’t want to be involved – but because I’m just plain tired of it.  When I get too involved in the things going on this sick world of ours, it brings me down and I’m no use to anyone.

Imagine the burden our Savior had to carry.  He was covered with the sin of the world.  Every dark deed known to man – every evil thought, word and action – rested heavily on His shoulders.  He couldn’t escape what He was destined to do.  It was part of the plan – part of His promise to the world.  He carried every last sin to the grave and buried it.  He then conquered death and made it possible for all of us to see the light – even in a dark world.

When it seems like the world is closing in – when we just can’t seem to forget, forgive or be glad about anything – when our hearts are troubled – turn to the cross.  This instrument of execution is where our sins were destroyed forever.  The cost was immense and it was paid because of God’s love for us.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Grace is so amazing……for us it is free if we choose Him. For Him it cost His life. Knowing how much it cost to redeem us makes me value that redemption all the more.
