Lord Jesus, change my fear into amazement. help me to walk with You and be amazed, rather than behind You and be afraid.
listen to the Lord’s appeal:
“you may fear what is Divine, but why not love what is human? you may run away from Me as the Lord, but why not run to Me as your Father? perhaps you are filled with shame for causing My bitter passion. DO NOT BE AFRAID. this cross inflicts a mortal injury, not on Me, but on death. these nails no longer pain Me, but only deepen your love for Me. I do not cry out because of these wounds, but through them I draw you into My heart. My body was stretched on the cross as a symbol, not of how much I suffered, but of my all-embracing love. I count it no loss to shed blood: it is the price I have paid for your ransom.
come, then, return to Me and learn to know Me as your Father, Who repays good for evil, love for injury and boundless charity for piercing wounds.”
i wish i could remember where i got these words.
they are so beautiful.
and so is this sweet daffodil.
and in my amazement i wanted to share these things with you!
