I was on Facebook last night.  I noticed a post by CALLED Magazine that asked what is the greatest lesson you’ve learned? It struck me as something I should think about and blog about.

After some thought, the biggest lesson that I have learned is that I need Jesus.

Romans 3:22-24 (NIV)

22This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Without Jesus, my life would have no meaning.  There would be no Heaven to look forward to.  I would still be depressed, apathetic, having anxiety attacks, & a victim in this world.  Not to mention life would be dull and boring.

I can’t do this life alone.  He is the lover of my soul, my redeemer, my best friend, my healer, my comforter, my protector, my provider, my source, my joy, and everything else that I would ever need.

When times have looked really bad, He was there.  When things are amazing, He is also there.  He has promised that He would never leave me.

Deuteronomy 31:6, 8 (NIV)

6Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”8The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

The Bible even says there is nothing that can separate us/me from His love.

Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)

38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

My Jesus is beyond amazing!  I’m glad I get to live this life with Him.

There is an amazing song that I love to hear/sing.  Here are the Lyrics:

“More Than Amazing” by Lincoln Brewster

You’re the one who walked on water
And you calmed the raging seas
You command the highest mountains
to fall upon their kneesYou’re the one who welcomed sinners
And you opened blinded eyes
You restored the brokenhearted
And you brought the dead to lifeforgetting all our sins
You remember all your promisesYou are amazing
More than amazing
Forever our god
You’re more than enough
You are amazing

With authority you’ve spoken
And you’ve set the captive free
You’re the king who came to serve
You’re the God who washed our feet

You’re the one who took our burdens
And you bled upon the cross
In your kindness and your mercy
You became the way for us

forgetting all our sins
You remember all your promises

You are amazing
More than amazing
Forever our god
You’re more than enough

You are amazing
More than amazing
Forever our god
You’re more than enough

Oh how marvelous
Oh how wonderful
Oh how glorious
You are amazing
Oh how marvelous
Oh how wonderful
Oh how glorious You are

Whoa!!!

Oh how marvelous(marvelous)
Oh how wonderful(wonderful)
Oh how glorious (Glroious)
You are amazing (you’re amazing)
Oh how marvelous
Oh how wonderful
Oh how glorious You are

You are amazing
More than amazing
Forever our god
You’re more than enough
You are amazing
