Love Was On The Cross

Love is when you’re willing to give to someone else
simply because you would have it no other way.
It’s knowing you would be there for them
No matter what, no matter when, and no matter why.
It’s knowing sometimes you will never gain anything in return,
And instead of regretting, you find comfort
In knowing you never wanted it to begin with.

Love is saying you’re sorry,
even when you have nothing to be sorry about,
Or maybe taking the blame
When it could even cost you your life,
And even if they never care that you existed,
You will always have known you did the right thing
Because you loved them… and still do.

Love is being able to forgive when there is no reason to.
If anything, they may even be so unworthy of acknowledgment
As you pass them by.
But you would never harm them, hurt them, seek revenge,
Or dare bring them despair.
Tears and pain are well too known to you
To ever place them on someone you love.

Love is simply being willing to lay your life on the line…
Or on the Cross.

My Favorite Cliche

“Jesus Christ died for you! What more do you want Him to do? – Die Again?
Love is sacrifice. What are you going to do for Him?”

This is a cliche that I must be selfish with because I love the meaning behind it.
I love the fact it asks so bluntly, “What are you going to do for Him?”
and “What more do you want Him to do – Die again?”
It is so sad to hear the question of dying again.
It makes you feel a closer connection of what it meant that He “DIED!”
This is also a very sympathetic emotional plea and sentiment.
It makes me feel like I need to think every time I hear it.
I love You, God. Bless You and praise You, Father.
I love You forever! In sweet Jesus name I pray… AMEN!
Forever Loving You, Your daughter.

PS. Most times, I just say the first part:
“Jesus Christ died for you! What more do you want Him to do? – Die Again?”

Facing the Pierced Jesus

What’s it like to see the one you love
Nailed to the tree?
And to know the blood He sheds
Is the love to set you free?
How does it feel to know He’s dying
So that you will get to live,
And know you cannot stop it
When He’s the only one who can give?
What would you do if you saw His eyes,
And watched Him come to die?
This is facing the pierced Jesus,
So won’t you give Him a try?

Jesus Christ died for you.
What more do you want Him to do?
Die again? –
