Love, love your list. I nearly died this summer. While trying to breathe all I wanted to think about was this: my kids. I now know that’s what Jesus thought about when He suffocated on that cross — us. All of us. We are worth it all. Amen, sister. Thank you.
Wonderful Truths and reassurances Dawn and how awesome that when we are in Christ Jesus He empowers us to walk in Love and righteously without sin.
Romans 6:17-19 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness
Romans 6:21-23 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
