My Dearest Jesus


My Dearest Jesus, 
On this Saturday, sandwiched between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, I write to thank you.
Thank you for taking on the burden of the cross. 
Thank you for entering into a physically and relationally painful state to save me, an unworthy soul. 
Thank you for holding me in the palm of your hand through all of my mis-steps and sin. 

On this Saturday, sandwiched between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, I write to thank you. 
Thank you for your great love for me, a love unmatched by any other.
Thank you for making Sunday a day of great glory with your resurrection. 
Thank you for all of the difficulties you endured to ensure eternal life for me. 

On this Saturday, sandwiched between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, I write to thank you. 
Thank you for taking on the wrath of your Almighty Father, unlike any other would. 
Thank you for your power that is matched by your amazing grace and mercy. 
Thank you for loving me as your own, for creating me perfectly for your plan. 

On this Saturday, sandwiched between Good Friday and Easter Sunday, I write to thank you. 
I write with a heart overflowing with awe in considering the horrid crime you endured. 
I write with a heart breaking for the hate put upon you by your friends and enemies alike.
I write with a heart overwhelmed by your love despite my obvious sins. 

Thank you, not only for enduring the crucifixion, but equally as important, for the resurrection. 
Thank you for choosing to give me much more than my unworthy self ever deserves.
Thank you for expecting my best, but embracing and forgiving me at my worst.

My dear Jesus, thank you.
