Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

A to Z Challenge: X ....




Cross

X crosses out what’s wrong, on the cross where for our sins He paid.  
X on its side 
is plus (+);  Unified
with Christ, I am made unafraid. 

X marks the spot, where my sins He did blot, 
sent from the Father above, 
X is for treasure I have found beyond measure
because of my Savior’s love. 

What else will I find behind the X?                  
There is usually a little before,
Like an ‘e’ or an ‘a,’ or X stands by itself,
to give receiver something more.

But there’s nothing more X can give us
Than the payment received on that cross.
For those who in Him place their trust,
Have gained eternity in place of their dross.

And now that X is finished,
‘O’ comes into play.
For the empty tomb stands open,
Where once His body lay.

X’s and O’s bring kisses and hugs,
signs of love for one held dear.
How much more the cross and the empty tomb,
offer love to the one who draws near.
