Through JESUS...

This bible study on the tabernacle is so amazing. I want to blog about this first day of homework for this week.. God is so amazing- words cannot describe. In the tabernacle one of the things we find is the mercy seat. Back in the day, God was present there. It was the focal point of God's manifested glory to His people. Long story short the Hebrew word for mercy seat means to cancel, or to make atonement.
* "God presented Jesus Christ as a [mercy seat] through faith in his blood." (Romans 3:25)
God sent his Son to be the mercy seat for our sins!

Now, a great our depravity, Christ died for us! She says, " Christ died for us. He died for people who yelled, "Crucify him!" He died for those who ripped His flesh with whips. He died for those who slapped Him and spit on Him... In the moment in all of history when humanity could not have been further from God, Christ died for us."
We cannot even imagine how terrible the sins that hung on Jesus that day. "His father was forced to look away. His Holiness had to forsake His own Son so that through his sacrifice Christ could intercede on our behalf. Jesus experienced the excruciating pain of being forsaken by God so that we might not have to. And because He did, "we have peace with God." (Rom. 5:1)

Our minds cannot even comprehend that kind of love. Even as I type this, I think, even if I dont want to ....sometimes I take this for granted. Lord, forgive me.

All we have to do is believe and accept that love that Jesus died on the cross and rose again for us and we are free and clear and forgiven! John 3:16

" Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. " John 14:6

"But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)" Eph. 2: 4-5

In Control

So I get devotions in my emails and other random daily bible verses etc...and I was looking through them and realized something. The last few days the same bible verse kept coming up in different places....

Like 5 different sources had the bible verse Jeremiah 29:11 " For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ad little add-ons about it..I was like "Wait. There are a lot of places reminding me of how God is in control and knows the plans he has and that they are good....when I dont know what I will do or what I should do....God is when one prays for wisdom. :)

God is good!

random rambling post...

I am just not a good blogger at heart I guess ha...I always think about blogging and what I would write but there is just so much to write about that I never feel like writing it...but after I do, I am know the phrase "a woman's work is never done." ?? a rabbit trail...I just looked that quote up and went to this website - it says " Martha Ballard, a well-known eighteenth-century woman, wrote in her journal on Nov. 26, 1795, "A womans work is Never Done as ye Song Says, and happy Shee whos Strength holds out to the End..." Interesting...
haha its not necessarily a woman's work but besides that point. it is a true statement...always laundry to do, dishes to do, clothes to put away, toys to pick up, clutter to pick up, get done and feel a sense of accomplishment...then do it all over again. But it is life.
If you know me, you know that I am disorganized and a messy person ha i dont really care to clean...however when its done, I love that it is clean. I have actually gotten better and want it to be clean more than before if you can believe it! ;) Therefore, everyday I have been picking up and cleaning so that it doesnt pile up...except for the laundry today...but I spent all day catching up on laundry and now its 7/8ths done hahaha

Then ending the day playing with Drew and Nick is the cherry on top :) I love Drew's laughs!
