There is no gift greater than laying down your life for another. Jesus did so for us, even when we were in the pit of despair, unclean and hopeless. He died so we wouldn’t have to. How can we ever possibly repay such love and sacrifice? We can’t. It’s because of God’s infinite love that he provided the necessary means for our salvation. He alone deserves the credit while we reap the benefits. Our gratitude is all we can offer, and even that doesn’t compare to God’s unconditional love. The only gifts we can give are ones that He’s already given to us. Take my life and let it be, consecrated, Lord to Thee.

I had no gift to offer on the day of Jesus’ birth. My voice had no great songs to sing.

What could I bestow that would have any worth? What words could I possibly bring?

He gave His life for me, He suffered and died; His hands and feet nailed to a tree.

When the sword pierced a gash in His most precious side, I know He bled there for me.

He died – my redeemer, but He chose to do so. The grave could not hold this man.

He overcame death, forgave all my sins and it all was a part of His plan.

For all that He’s done I can never repay. His love is so far beyond me.

And so I come to Him and most humbly pray that His servant I always will be.


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.

    I always love your words, Kathy. I tear up at the overwhelming sacrifice HE made for us. We are worthy in his sight and it is simply jaw dropping to me. I so humbly give him the praise that I’m here today. And so glad you are too. ❤️💕

      Your kind words touched my heart this morning. If we can lift each other up each day with encouragement and love, we are doing God’s will and He is blessing us through it. May He continue to live in our hearts and allow us to share the good news with others.
