We walk through a season of shadows and gallows; a season in which we feel we have gone too far and done too much wrong. The weight of the sadness, loneliness, and fear shackle us under a heavy burden. I am not sure there is hope or forgiveness or life for me.
At the same time, there is a beating heart, an amazing love, and a rising revival; Jesus lives and dies and lives again in this season we call Lent. Jesus knows my name, forgives my mistakes, and offers me an amazing life. With Jesus, I am coming alive…really alive!
I want nothing more than Jesus first in my heart. So, before I do anything during this season of shadows and gallows I will seek a closer relationship with Jesus. Oh, I don’t deserve this amazing love; but Jesus gives His life to give me His love!
I pray my stone-cold heart and my stubborn will can finally yield to the amazing grace of the Lord God. I yield my rebel heart to Jesus. I pray Jesus will rush in to rescue me…again.
