Arms Wide Open


Many are visiting the cross today. For some it is their very first visit, which excites me!


“Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face”


“With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open”


“With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I'll show you everything”

“With arms wide open”


I come and stand at the foot of the cross today, knowing who I am, a sinner in need of her Savior. A Savior who’s arms are wide open ready to embrace her and take her in.


Can you see Jesus on the cross today with His arms wide open?

For Jesus is waiting ‘with arms wide open’.... waiting for you!

Thank You Jesus for changing everything. For showing us true love.

I'm really thankful that we don't have to see this day as a day of misery and loss. Truly, it is just the opposite, when we believe, and when we see what our Lord has done for us.

Thank you for the humble invitation to receive Him, and may it be seen by many as just that!

My prayer today is many will run to a living Savior, as the trial, Crucifixion, and burial scenes are replayed tonight, those that know Jesus will be refreshed and filled with a purpose; the Purpose God has for each of us to tell of his Love. For those that don't know HIM, their hearts will humbly fall at the foot of the cross and feel the need to be embraced by a LOVE so AMAZing that too will be for ever changed. Dear Jesus, thank-you for the cross. Let my life please you today. Let it be a sweet aroma of sacrifice, that others will want to know it is YOU, be my hands and feet, bless me and those that know YOU to share with every opportunity what took place the night of the CROSS...Those hands that where nailed for ALL. Fill me today as run to your wide open arms with praise knowing it is YOU. In Jesus name-Amen
Thank-You Nichole, you put it so simple today.
Love, Hugs and Prayers, Mom

I look forward to the day I can look at My Lord and thank Him for all He has done for me. I pray for those who do not know him that this will be the year their eyes are opened to who Jesus really is and what He will do for them.
Have a great weekend,

I remember when I ran to those open arms...oh, the joy, the relief, the peace, the freedom. And I think of the look on the face of a woman who recently gave her heart to the Lord...PRICELESS.
Oh, how I love Him!

Love you, friend! Thank you for your sweet prayer. You are a blessing!
Have a tremendously blessed weekend celebrating our Savior.

A fellow sinner desperately in need of her Savior....every single day,
K :)
