A Grateful Heart

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. -- John 3:16 NKJV

Happy Easter, Jesus! Words can never express the depth of Your love, nor the price You paid on Calvary -- for me. I am not a perfect woman, of course You know that well. How many times have I fallen on my face before You, only to have You pick me up again and set me on my feet? You knew the sins I would commit against You. Still, You chose to walk the lonely path to the cross for me. You knew how grieved Your heart would be to have me reject Your ways time and time again. Still, You love me. You carried my sins upon Your back to Calvary. You allowed my nails to be driven through Your hands to the cross. You allowed Your blood to spill from Your side, so that I may be covered in Your everlasting Grace. You could have called ten thousand angels but You didn't. You chose to die for me. There is no way I can ever repay You. There is no deed I will ever do that will be enough. Yet, I will be with You through eternity because You love me that much. How blessed am I to have a Savior like You! From a humble, undeserving, but oh so grateful heart, thank you Jesus, my Savior forever!
