“No one has ever seen or heard of a God like you, who does such deeds for those who put their hope in him.”   Isaiah 64:4 GNT
Jesus, You are the Only One who comes to us.  You didn’t wait for us to get things just right; You didn’t require that we ask with specific words or ceremonies; You simply came, according to the plan that You and Your Papa put together before the beginning of time.
Not only that, You came as a helpless, powerless baby, born in humble circumstances.
Next, You lived among us, teaching, healing, delivering, saving; bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth.
Then, You did the most loving thing that ever has been or ever will be done:  You suffered and died so that we have eternal life with You.
You didn’t stop there:  You rose from the dead, defeating Satan and all of his effect forever.  You said, “It is finished.”  With that the new covenant of Grace was made.
And as if that wasn’t enough, You returned to Your Papa and sent Holy spirit so that You now live in us instead of merely with us.
Thank You.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
