Blessings of the Cross

The canvas of the sky was a perfect blue -- with a few beautiful, light clouds dancing across the horizon. I was driving to my sister Barbara's house, just a few miles from where I lived at the time, cruising along the highway, just praising God for all of His great blessings to me.

I glanced up into the sky and there it was! The clouds had taken the shape of the cross right in front of me! The vertical part of the cross was normal size, but the horizontal portion of the cross was so long -- I could not see the end! I looked across the sky, but the cross went on and on -- never ending. It was as though it was stretched from sky to sky, just like God's love for us!

Then the sweet Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and said, "There is no end to the cross. My blessings for you are never ending." I was so touched by this, the tears flowed down my face with joy! Never ending blessings! That's phenomenal! It is miraculous!

The blessings of the cross include salvation, healing, restoration -- and the blessings go on and on! That's only the beginning. Whatever you need in your life has been provided for you through the cross. Yes, Jesus died on an old rugged cross that you and I may benefit from all of the blessings the cross provides. His blessings are never ending!

Sometimes I think we tend to limit God in our thinking. There is so much available to us through the shedding of His precious blood on the cross. Don't limit God in your circumstance. All things are possible with God.

I love the song that says: "To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry. And would the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!"

If you ever start to doubt His love for you, think of the cross. Oh how He loves you and me! Can you imagine such love? He has proven His love for me over and over again. My heart is forever grateful, and I never want to take His love or blessings for granted.

You have not known love until you have truly experienced the love of God. Don't miss out on all of the beautiful blessings He has in store for you. He is waiting for you with outstretched arms. You can experience the blessings of the cross.

Run to the cross. Kneel at the cross. God will meet you there.
