He did it all for me!

Yesterday was a pretty down day for me. I'm sure we all have those days where nothing bad has happened. You just feel depressed. Well, that was my yesterday. On the way home I was joking with my sister and told her that I couldn't wait to get to church last night because I needed a booster shot! (Like B12 shot) This has been one one of those weeks where I am glad my church has a Wednesday night service.

Last night our Assistant Pastor preached that if I had been the only one that needed saved Jesus would still have given his life. He spoke about how through Jesus we have a right to Heaven, and about how we all feel unworthy but through Jesus we are more than worthy. He read a passage that I would like to share with you.

Romans 8: 16-18
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

These are the words of Apostle Paul. I know that my sufferings do not compare with the Apostle. When I read these words I think about Heaven and it reminds me that any suffering I have on earth will not even matter when we get there. This sermon was just the booster shot that I needed.

It is easy to feel depressed when the trials of just everyday life seem to get in the way. My husband says it best "Sometimes Life gets in the way of Living!" Thank you all for praying for me yesterday! I woke up today with a renewed energy.

God Bless You All!

I've been feeling really down lately too. I know once the weather gets nice and sun peaks out I'll be feeling better. But what a nice little reminder you posted- it amazes me when I think that if it had been just me, He still would have died- for just me. Little old me. WOW!
