We’re going through this life, not everything goes as planned, we’re led and guided by God’s almighty hand. Yet circumstances happen and pain sets in, Maybe someone passes away, or you are betrayed by a friend. The cross speaks to all, through the blood of Jesus, we hear its call. For Jesus’s blood would’ve been shed abroad, if I were the only one in need of God. He still would’ve chosen to obey and die, if I were the only one to comply. And when life is not always what it seems, with twists and turns along the way. Jesus answered our problems by walking with us each day. So when you feel all dark and drear, Jesus took the cross so He could be here. It’s times like these, the love of the cross speaks to me. It enlightens my eyes, so I can see. When death was all that seemed so sure, Jesus’s sacrifice keeps our hearts white and so pure. When you think you’ve gone too far and all is lost, you have only to look to Jesus’s love that hung on the cross.
