I Know that my Redeemer Lives

today I am thankful for my savior and redeemer Jesus Christ. And for the testimony that I have of Him.
Painting by Simon Dewey - "I am the Way"

I'm getting to this a little late today. It seems like things have conspired to keep me away from the computer and me posting this. I should have written it earlier and set it to Auto post but I didn't.

Of all the things that I am thankful for this is at the very, very top.

I have a Testimony of Jesus Christ.
He is my Older Brother.
We knew each other before this world began.

He loves me.
He loves me so much that He was willing
to take all of my faults,
all of my sorrows,
all of my sins
upon Him.

He hurt beyond measure....for me.
He bled in the Garden...for me.
He suffered insults and indignities....for me.
He suffered pain on the cross... for me.
He died for me.

For three days He lay in a tomb.
On the third day...
He arose.
He overcame death....for me.

He knows me.

He loves me.

This I know above all else.
I have felt His love woven
throughout my entire life.
I have felt Him beside me during
some of the darkest moments of my life.
And also during moments of indescribable Joy.

He loves me.

And He loves you too.

This I know.

And for this I am Thankful.
