Merry Christmas 2015


"I have come so that you may have glorious, eternal life in heaven. I alone am the true path; I alone am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to God, the Father, except through me. There are no other paths, no other ways...it is only through me. No one else loved you so much he died on a cross for you. No one else descended into hell, separated from Our Father and His pure holiness. 

Before time began, I knew this would happen, yet I chose His will above my own; all because of My love for you... only because of My love for you. You see, I asked Our Father if He would allow the suffering to pass me by. I pleaded with Him, I begged Him, I cried so hard I sweat great drops of blood and still, He shook His head 'no'. 

On that cross, I thought about you. I knew the choice you would make and rejoiced my suffering wasn't in vain. I knew the choice you would make and the sorrow shook me to My marrow, the knowing that upon your death we would be separated for eternity. And yet I stayed, hung between two thieves, one who understood, the other chose poorly. It is even so today; those who choose wisely, those who choose poorly. Days of rejoicing, days of sorrow but I don't regret I chose Our Father's will over My own. I did it gladly and would do it again if it meant you might choose Me.

Come to Me; I alone know how you seek peace, love, acceptance. I alone give you all that unconditionally; I alone will help you carry all your burdens. It's true it won't always be easy but you will always have My shoulder to lean on. Your tears are precious to Me and you'll always always always have Me to help carry your load. You don't have to do life by yourself; you can have Me.

I'm that small whisper in your heart...
come to Me, I alone will give you rest.

~ Jesus Christ

  8. "I alone am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to God, the Father, except through me. There are no other paths, no other ways.."

    The reason a tiny babe born in a manger ended up crucified , buried and rose from the dead...for US . Praise God for His mercy.
