Cross Thoughts


When I think about the cross of Christ so many emotions come to mind. The foremost being gratefulness…

Jesus washed away my sins, gave me a fresh start, accepted me, and calls me beautiful and eternally loved! Nothing in this life can compare to these priceless gifts. And no heartache can rob me of the joy of having them. Meditating on all Christ has done for me calms my soul and reminds me of what is truly important in life–my relationship with God.

When we begin our day with a grateful heart we won’t find room to complain. Thankfulness and negativity cannot co-exist. Negativity drains our energy. Reject it in all its forms and renew your mind with the life giving words of Christ. Embrace all that is good, lovely, and pure, and all that Christ accomplished at the cross. Focus on these things and the peace of God will be with you.

Praying for a grateful heart 💜

When you think you can’t get through your day, just remember- Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding for you. Pour out your heart to Him. You can do all things through Christ!
