it catches me by surprise sometimes.

how rude, greedy, self centered and short sighted i can be.

no matter what happens in my life… this one thing remains.

with the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. the Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
-romans 8

may i be one who simply follows after my messiah. may i love Him with a pure heart. and may my life reflect the grace and mercy He has always shown me.

through the darkness, the cross still stands.
