When I think of the fact that Jesus was willing to sacrifice himself for me, so that my sins would be forgiven, and His mercy would forever be mine, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
Knowing that I can lay down my guilt and shame over choices I made in this life is truly the greatest blessing I could ask for. So many years I spent carrying that baggage around before I finally understood that His forgiveness was always available;it was up to ME to accept it and let go of the weight I’d held on to for far too long.
The freedom that came with that acceptance is indescribable, and I will never take it for granted. It is my ultimate prayer that all can experience the wonders of a life free from all of that unnecessary weight.
May you all have a blessed and peaceful Easter weekend, knowing that He gave His life so that our lives, through the good and bad, may be peaceful ahead.
