It’s simple.

Jesus loves you.
He really, truly loves you.
So much that He thought of you before it all, and made a way for you.
He knew you wouldn’t make it on your own,
And so He came for you.

Jesus died for you.
He stepped in front of you to take the bullet,
To pay the price for what you deserved.
Jesus loved you that much.
Jesus took the shame, the whips, the nails.
He suffered so you could be set free.

What your sin started, He finished.
And He wasn’t done yet – 
Jesus defeated Hell and the Grave.
Now, Jesus offers you life, real life.
New life.

Because He loves you,
He gives you this moment
To believe in Him,
To receive His forgiveness,
And to give Him your life.

Surrender is simple,
But that first step can be hard.
Jesus knows this, and loves you where you are, right now.
Will you accept His love?
Will you believe in Jesus and give your heart to Him?

Jesus loves you regardless of your decision.
Jesus will keep on loving you.
Let His love change your life.
Let His love change you.

Jesus loves you.
He really, truly loves you.

Psalm 23

IMG_1061[1]

Jesus is my Shepherd, my guide and the One who takes care of me.
What else would I ever need?

He leads me to places I will flourish and grow – to where I can find strength through Him.
He stops and makes me rest, and drink in the cool waters of His Spirit.

He makes me new.
He takes me down paths where I can learn what is right and how to live for Him and His name.

When I turn and walk into the darkness, and sin begins to swallow me, He doesn’t give up on me. He stays with me, when no one else does. He convicts me, corrects me and disciplines me, because of His great love. When I find myself lost and unsure, He reminds me I have nothing to fear, because He is greater. I can trust Him completely.

In the midst of conflict, when the world comes against me, they come against Him. And, He has the victory.

He has set me apart, He fills me so full of His peace, His faithfulness, His loving-kindness and His grace, it spills over and soaks those around me.

Surely, God will showcase His goodness and His mercy today, tomorrow and every day. That’s who He is. And because He is God, I will trust Him with my forever.
