You know, there are many things to write about and I miss writing on this blog but today, I felt pressed to write.  I want to share about the blood of Jesus.  His blood.  There is nothing like it.  Many will tell you there is power in the blood and name of Jesus Christ but how many truly believe when it becomes personal.  I for one will admit that it was not easy to get me where I am today and it is not always easy but God never gives up on me.  He never did and never will.  So, why should feel discouraged when the world will preach but not practice because I am to keep my eyes on Him alone.  I am far from perfect but oh to be like Him, my blessed redeemer! He is God and has shown me much love, mercy, grace, and patience–whom am I to choose not to show another similarly, so help me God, no matter their past, present or future? Anyhow, I was reminded of this lyric as tears rolled down my cheeks because He is faithful and I pray to never lose the wonder of the cross where His precious blood was shed for me:

O precious sight, my Savior stands,
Dying for me with outstretched hands.
O precious sight, I love to gaze,
Remembering salvation’s day,
Remembering salvation’s day.
Though my eyes linger on this scene,
May passing time and years not steal
The power with which it impacts me,
The freshness of its mystery,
The freshness of its mystery.

May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.
May I see it like the first time
Standing as a sinner lost,
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
Watching wide eyed at the cost.
May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.

Behold the God-man crucified,
The perfect sinless sacrifice.
As blood ran down those nails and wood,
History was split in two, yes,
History was split in two.
Behold the empty wooden tree,
His body gone, alive and free.
We sing with everlasting joy,
For sin and death have been destroyed, yes,
Sin and death have been destroyed.

May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.
May I see it like the first time
Standing as a sinner lost,
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
Watching wide eyed at the cost.
May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.

May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.
May I see it like the first time
Standing as a sinner lost,
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
Watching wide eyed at the cost.
May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the cross.
