Alive again!

What has passed is no more and the joy to come is the promise we seek.  Yet, it is the now, in all its fermenting anguish that still must be lived.

He did
all of it
for me

Each painful step He endured was because of me.  Each tortured moment of flesh torn, pierced and punctured was suffered for my sin - not His, for He had none.  Each second of seperation that broke His heart was borne that I would never be...

from God

Would I be a worthy recipient of such an offering?

no matter how hard I tried
it could never be


He gave His all.

As the trees bud and the flowers bloom the promise of new growth is overwhelming.  What lay dormant for months has come alive again.  I can feel it within.

  1. This is a great message Denise. He is alive - I praise Him that He chose to die for us - unworthy and undeserving.

    Love you - Beth

  2. This was just powerfully beautiful Denise!!

  3. I rejoice to hear the words especially from you, dear one.

    Sending love and hugs. :D

  4. Well written. I love the line breaks.

  5. So glad that resurrection has birthed within your soul. Mine as well.


  6. Denise,

    I think of you in Haiti and I breathe deeply, knowing He gave all so that one day all suffering will be gone. Amen.

    Aside, where did you get this gorgeous template?? I went to see Josh, but could not find the way to download it. I have searched and searched for a way to make my photos opaque on a transparent background...and here it is! I must know his secret!

    Do you know?

  7. Yay! I did it, Denise! Changed my template. I'm not sure if it looks as nice as yours...can't decide what it needs. But my pictures show up better now! Thanks for your help. ;)

  8. These thoughts are like a beautiful whisper of the truth of calvary and the promise of all that is ours because He is alive!

    I loved this Denise, and I can see God doing something special in your heart.

  9. This is beautifully written. Happy late Easter to you...
