And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD; it shall rejoice in His salvation.
One memorial stone stands above all others in the Christian faith, and that is the mount of Golgotha called the Place of the Skull.
There, the spotless Lamb of God hung and bled and died so that He might bring us into right relationship with our Father. On that hill, He paid the price that we have no means to pay. If He had not taken our place, God would not receive our thanksgiving. We would forever be separated from Him.
But because Jesus chose Calvary, the voiceless can now magnify His name and enter boldly into His throne room. No longer are we orphans and alone, wandering this earth without haven or home.]
Give thanks that we have been redeemed. Through the shed blood of Christ, every crimson stain has been washed whiter than snow. We now live and move and find our very existence in Him.
Praise Him for the skills and strength to do the work that He has given us each day. Rejoice that He has blessed us with divine wisdom when we did not know what to do. For joy in place of sorrow, for peace instead of anxiety, for strength instead of weakness – raise a hallelujah!
Heavenly Father, You are the giver of every good gift! We thank You for the perfect gift of Your Son, and we rejoice in our salvation!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. With a heart of thanksgiving and a mouth filled with praise, bless the Lord! Magnify His name!
