Jesus said to her, " I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" She said to him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world." John 11:25-28

Left In the Dust

I attended a very humbling church service this evening. Placing ashes upon my forehead non-verbally tells the world that I know I am a sinner. My unGodly free-will life choices make these ashes black and unappealing. I willfully walked forward, and personally moved my hair aside, to receive the mark of the cross to begin my 40-day Lenten journey.

I am a sinner and I deserve death.

Genesis 3:19(NIV)
By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

    Thank you Jesus that I don’t get what I deserve. May I remember that in reference to my own loved ones.
