A loving Christ.

Easter is one of my most favorite holidays. I love how everyone is more focused on Christ and the magnificent things He's done for us. I am so grateful for Him. I am grateful for His sacrifice. All week people have been posting #becauseofhim all over Facebook and Instagram. It has had me thinking of what I would put after the phrase "Because of him.." Here is what I have come up with. I have a testimony of Christ. I know without any doubts that HE LIVES. He loves with a pure love that is eternal.

Because of Him I am clean.
Because of Him I am forgiven.
Because of Him I start each day and know I can be better.
Because of Him I can be kind.
Because of Him I can be a friend.
Because of Him I have been changed.
Because of Him I know I will be with those I love forever.
Because of Him I can hope.
Because of Him I have faith.
Because of Him I know I'm a daughter of God.
Because of Him I know that some sacrifices are good sacrifices.
Because of Him I have everything.

I think of those I love back home. I think of how much I wish they knew how their place in my past has directly impacted my future. I think of those who I may not have been the best to, and pray that someone has been better. I think of how much my heart aches for the things in my life that I wish could be different.…
