Lately, I am starting to grasp more and more what Jesus did for us when He died upon the cross. I grew up with all the Bible stories, so believing them was natural for me. I started realizing, though, that I never fully understood the depth of His love for us. I never quite knew the pain and fear that went along with His death.
A few weeks ago I was talking with someone about the hurts we can be faced with. And I said that no one would willingly take those pains on themselves so someone else can live in freedom. As soon as those words left my mouth, I finally felt like I understood what happened on that cross. Because there has been Someone who willingly took all my pain, all my fears, all my insecurities, all my struggles and challenges upon Himself so that I can live in freedom. When we come to that point of realization, when we can grasp how deep His love is, how far He went for us, then we start stepping more into the freedom that is ours to have.
There is a song that is being listened to in our house a lot these last days. What we love most is the talking that happens in between. I want to share it with you and I hope that you can start grasping what happened on that cross and with me, slowly start stepping into freedom.
So on this Monday, remember these words that I made into a printable for you (later this week I will show pictures of it displayed in my house, but I will be trying out gold foil first). I have two different versions for you!
Click here for this first printable.
And click here for the second one.
Have a beautiful Monday!
