JESUS...HE Got A Hold

Since getting a puppy...his name is Bear...I have spent a lot of time outside at all hours of the day and night.  First thing this morning I walked out and found it had snowed. It was just enough to lightly cover everything in a blanket of white. Beautiful. It makes me think of how when Jesus comes into our lives He takes our sins and makes them white as snow.

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, let’s settle this,”
      says the Lord.
   “Though your sins are like scarlet,
      I will make them as white as snow.
   Though they are red like crimson,
      I will make them as white as wool.

I praise Him today that when Jesus comes into our hearts He makes us new. He changes us form the inside out. Not only does He change our hearts but He changes the way we think...feel...love...and see things. For me all of those things were a negative but now, most of the time, I am on the positive side of life. 

A little song came to mind this morning while I was talking with the Lord. Really it's how it is and I love it! It's called...JESUS Got A Hold Of My Life...and I praise Him and thank Him for it!!

Jesus got a hold of my life
And He won't let me go
Jesus got into my heart
Got into my soul
I use to be o' so sad
But now I'm just free and glad
Jesus got a hold of my life
And He won't let me go
 

Sometimes I remember when I use to be living in sin
I tried to act happy and free but I wasn't within
I fooled a lot of friends of mine
They thought I had some peace of mind
But I never had a thing until I opened up and let Jesus in

If your life is a mess, and everything seems to be on the negative side for you, why don't you call out to JESUS today. I tried all kinds of things to make me happy...to find peace...to calm the fears...nothing worked. Drugs and alcohol only work while your high...eventually you come back to reality. But with JESUS...HE works all the time. HE helps you through the tough times of life and gets you to the other side.

Let JESUS get a hold of your life today!

I love that song, Chelle. My mom used to sing it to us. Time spent in His throne room is better than any high from anything else. Thank you for reminding us how He can turn things around in our lives!
Blessings,
