My 3 year old son awoke again at around 3:30 am, crawled into bed and said he just wanted to snuggle for a minute. Many thoughts run through my head at once….I am so tired…He is sooo sweet…I’ll never fall back to sleep…What a precious time this is, and how my window of opportunity shrinks the older he gets. So, as I move over and he crawls in beside me, the only thing I can think of is THANK YOU JESUS! I start to pray, and recite all the things I have to be thankful for, and this song popped into my head. Written by Mac Powell, it is called By His Wounds.
He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace
Was upon Him
And by His wounds
By His wounds, we are healed.
We are healed by your sacrifice
And the life that You gave
We are healed for You paid the price
By Your grace, we are saved
We are Saved
What can wash away my sin, nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Now because it is the middle of the night, and not too much can cloud my head, I think I was better able to listen to Jesus and what He was trying to tell me. I say that because sometimes in my prayer time, I talk and don’t stop to listen. I have too much to do, excuses! Anyway, He put this on my heart, and here I am at 4:30 a.m. telling you about it.
Take the time to listen for Him to speak. We are healed, we are saved, we are washed white as snow because of His sacrifice.
