Thank You, Jesus

Written Easter Morning April 8, 2012

Thank You, Jesus, yes.
I own You so much.
You took away sin,
From my heart and soul.

You blessed me with life
Everlasting by
Your act at Calv’ry.
That act did free me.

I deserved to die
A spiritual death.
But God chose the plan,
One of sacrifice.

He sent You to us,
Knowing how it would end.
All I can utter
Is, “Thank, You, Jesus.”

Because of Your action
Of giving up Your will,
I have a sweet peace
About my own life.

You asked Your Father
To ‘forgive them’ ‘cause
They did not know what
They brought about.

Please, Lord, forgive me
When I mess things up.
Help me live rightly,
Live for You each day.

You chose to follow
God’s plan for Your life,
So that I might be
With You someday.

  1. Oh, yes. I'm reflecting on the work of the cross this week, too. Holding it high!

    1. Thank you for sharing. God has done so much for us. We should be shouting praises from the rooftops.

  2. Lovely, Miss Quiet Spirit. Thanks for sharing your thankful heart with us.


    1. Thank you for taking the time from your busy day to read it. Bless you.

  3. Of all the holidays on the calendar, I love Resurrection Sunday. As the scripture says, without His resurrection we would be most miserable.

    Thank you for the beautiful thoughts.

    1. Susan:
      The older I become, the more I love Easter. I don't have the same stress at Christmas I had as a young mother. But at Easter, I can focus, fully, on Jesus.

  4. Beautiful, poetry Cecelia! I see you are using your Blog as your journal! Well thank you for linking up and sharing your heart with us! Your Blog looks redone as well- so bright and beautiful! I would love to get a peek into some of your journals- I bet you have some from before you blogged! Would you be willing to share next week from some of these if you do? Thanks, In His Grace, Dawn

    1. Dawn:
      Thank you for your compliments. I journal from time to time. I would be glad to share from some of my past entries.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
