The Great Exchange!

    the great exchangeIt’s already paid for!   Today, we honor our Lord on this most Holy Day, Good Friday. We look to this day as one of   the most sacred days of the year….the day He gave His life for us.When we reflect on this day we think of all that He endured for us. His Perfect Love is so strong that He offered the  great exchange…His life for our freedom.I visualize His outstretched arms and think about the burdens that He endured. Even though this happened over 2,000 years ago…He is still the same; yesterday, today and forever.

And even though we have daily burdens, we must remember that what He did for us is a reminder for us to surrender. To surrender those things that do not serve us any longer. The hurts, the bitterness, the anger, the jealousy, resentment, loss and hate….were buried on this day. He took them away so we can live a new life.

We look to Jesus with reverence for what He did for us….yet not with sadness. We look to today as Good Friday…leading up to the day of Hope…Easter Sunday – Resurrection Day!

It all happened on the cross…the greatest representation of LOVE that exists. The giving up of one’s perfect life for all of our transgressions. It remains the same TODAY!!!

His outstretched arms are an embrace for the world to remember that when we look to God…we see all that is Good. The word good…has God in it!!! And God is LOVE…pure Love. A source of goodness, kindness, mercy, gentleness, peace, grace, gratitude, joy and understanding and all those beautiful attributes that are related to LOVE!

IAM_7+JohnHe is the Great “I Am.”We thank You God for being the Great I AM…for being all that you are so that we can    be your hands and feet for this world, and be light where there is darkness and salt to add flavor to the lives we touch!JESUS says in the Book of John…I AM THE WAY…
I AM THE TRUTH…
I AM THE LIFE…
I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD…
I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE…
I AM THE VINE…
I AM THE GATE…
I AM THE RESURRECTION & LIFE…
I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD….

WOW….WHAT ELSE COULD WE ASK FOR???

We honor Him today for giving us His only Son, to be the Great Exchange! We give Him glory for all He is, has done and continues to do in our lives.

Wishing you a Blessed Easter Weekend!

With all that “I am”…

Angela Jo

Story Behind the Book

In 2004, I felt a stirring in my heart. I was driving home and as clear as it could be, I heard a still, small voice say to me “You are to launch a project and it will be called “Your A.M. Wake Up Call!” I was literally chilled and in a state of awesome wonder! I asked myself, ‘What could...see more
