Sacrifice


 Linking up with Charlotte and Ginger who weekly host Spiritual Sunday

"Those things which are precious are saved only by sacrifice. David Kenyon

Sacrifice.....I'd do anything for my kids...to keep them safe....to make them happy.....to give them whatever they need.  I'd even take away their pain if I could.....and fight for them if anyone tries to hurt them.  When they want or need something.....I try my hardest to make it happen.

Sacrifice....it's what parent do for their kids. 
Sacrifice....we do it out of love. 
Sacrifice....we want the best of the best for them.

Sacrifice...it's what He did for us....
Sacrifice.....Because of how much He loves us....
Sacrifice....He paid the price....bought our freedom....did what nothing else could....
Sacrifice....

He chose to walk that road....out of His love for you and me....

Sacrifice for our children is what good parents do. I guess that is why Jesus sacrificed so much for us. I love the song. Happy Easter.

Cinner said...

Beautiful post Sarah, I alway am thrilled to read your words. I will come listen tomorrow when hubby is not asleep in the next room. love to you.

Debbie said...

That is a favorite song of mine.

I love your post. The fundamental part of my personal testimony is the realization not just of the sacrifice of Jesus on that cross but that of a God who would CHOOSE a father/son relationship with the One who would do it.

Now, that's a sacrifice that I know I could never, ever, make. What an awesome God we serve.

Cathy said...

That is such a lovely song. Thank the Lord for all He did for us. Wishing you a blessed week.

So true, Sarah! And so very encouraging. Easter blessings! :)

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Oh I remember hearing Sandi Patti sing this in our church while I was pregnant with my first child...so all of this rings so true to this mother's heart of 27 years. I also know that with all my efforts I failed and couldn't protect them fully...sin still knocked at our door and brought in pain.

I am so glad I know the one who took all our sins and suffering to the cross and through Him we are healed!!

Cindy Adkins said...

Hi Sarah,
I just came over to say "hi!" I hope you're doing great and that you had a happy holiday.
