I don't know if you've ever heard the song, "In Christ Alone," but it has been on my mind and in my heart all week. Today I just wanted to share a few verses that I've been singing over and over again. And each time, I feel my eyes well up with tears. I am in awe of His love for me. God sent his son to die a horrible death on a cross for you and me. As a mom, I can't imagine the heartache, but He knew He had to do it to share His love, His mercy, and His grace with us. But the best news is that on the third day the stone rolled away and He rose again! I could shout it from the rooftops! My God gave his one and only son for you and for me! I just can't thank Him enough for saving me. What an amazing feeling. What fullness.
"Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied.
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live, I live.
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the word by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again!!"
