All Because of Jesus

I have everything I need because Jesus is my Shepherd  (Psalm 23:1).

I have been forgiven of all my sins because Jesus died on the cross (I Peter 3:18).

I’m beautiful because He has given me beauty for ashes (Isaiah 61:3).

I’m gracious because He is gracious toward me (John 13:34).

I love because He first loved me (Romans 5:8).

I forgive because I have been forgiven (Ephesians 4:32).

I don’t get vengeance because He said vengeance is His (Romans 12:19).

I don’t worry about a thing because He said pray about it all (I Thessalonians 5:17).

I give because then I receive (Luke 6:38).

I am patient because everything will work out for my good (Romans 8:28)

I trust because I know His Word is true (Psalm 19:7).

I cry because when I am weak then I am strong  (II Corinthians 12:10).

I’m transparent because I know we’ve all sinned and fallen short (Romans 3:23).

I’m thankful because things have been worse (James 1:2).

I’m hopeful because I know He has good plans for me (Jeremiah 29:11).

I enjoy this day because tomorrow will have its own set of problems  (Matthew 6:34).

I am everything I am because He first saved me (Ephesians 2:8).

I’m obedient to Him because I am His sheep (John 10:27).

Because of the cross I can live life more abundantly (John 10:10).

It’s all because of His grace and loving-kindness toward me. And for that I am grateful.

What a blessed Resurrection Sunday.

Love,

Margo
