Can you imagine...
Can you believe...
that before you or I were even born,
the heavens were rejoicing,
the depths of the earth shouting,
the mountains were singing
as in a chorus
with every forest and tree in it.
All because the Lord acted on our behalf!
He swept away our sins... like a cloud.
As if that were nothing for Him.
Yet it was everything!
He makes it sound so light, so easy...
so airy and beautiful.
Yet it was the darkest day in history.
The blood that was shed
as He was spit upon and betrayed.
He hearts that fell
as they considered their hope lost.
This man who they thought
had come to save them from oppression
now being killed upon a cross.
Surely this was not the day of celebration.
But on the third day...
that's when the clouds were swept
and the heaven's rejoiced.
it's when our Waiting Redeemer
looked upon His hand
and saw your name and mine
Paid in full.
The Lord has acted on our behalf.
And all the earth rejoiced.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
