Music Mondays- How Can It Be by Lauren Daigle

This week we remember Jesus’s love for us when he allowed himself to be crucified on the cross because of his great love for us. He took our guilt and sin on himself and paid the penalty of sin, which is death. Death being not just physical but also separation from God. Jesus’s sacrifice on our behalf opens the way for us to be forgiven and enter into relationship with God and receive eternal life.

It is awe inspiring when I ponder it. Jesus who knew no sin, committed no sin, took my sins, our sins, on himself because he loves us. It causes me to be in awe and wonder filled with gratitude.

I love Laruen Daigle’s song How Can It Be because it expresses those sentiments so well. May this Holy Week be a blessed time for you as we remember Jesus’s love and sacrifice for us.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Music Mondays- I Will Trust In You by Lauren Daigle

I haven’t posted since Valentine’s Day. Guess who got sick again? Yes, me. Fortunately a snow canceled my classes Thursday and Fridays I am off, so I tried resting at home, but to no avail. After four sleepless nights due to coughing, I went to an Urgent Care place yesterday knowing they would prescribe the prednisone and antibiotics I needed. I chose to go there wanting to avoid the ER because I have been there too many times in recent months-three times. The physician at the Urgent Care place told me if I do not improve to go to the ER. She also let me know I was in the beginning of developing pneumonia and to take it seriously.

I had to cancel my two classes at the Ukrainian church. That is the worst thing for me not being there for my refugee friends. That is a downer for me.

On top of it all, when I started to my car, it sounded like the muffler had gone out. However, I think someone stole the catalytic converter. So it should be more of a nuisance thing because insurance will cover it.

But I am turning my focus on Jesus and what he has called me to do. It felt like a good time to again share Lauren Daigle’s song I Will Trust In You.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.
