Thought For The Month


Lord Jesus,
many years have passed
since you hung upon the cross
with searching eyes
and outstretched arms.

Gone now is the pain of Calvary
but not the love
and not the searching.
Your arms are still wide open,
still reaching out to us.
You have loved us
with an everlasting love,
never closing your heart,
never counting the cost.

Lord Jesus
may the memory of your Crucified Love
and the grace of your Risen Presence
comfort us;
set us free
give us hope,
and make us strong.
