Day 10: Jesus is . . .

Jesus is My Everything!

Ten days ago I thought it would be a good idea to take the month to write about Jesus and His different titles. The personal assignment has been quite a challenge for me. Not because I would ever run out of titles, but it has caused me such sacred reflection upon who He is and why He is so incredibly important in my life that it is becoming difficult to put them into words.

And I am finding that I have come up short everyday in my desire to share my thoughts and feelings about who He really is.

For He is Wonderful. He is the Way. He is the Prince of Peace. He is the Father. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He is God’s Only Begotten Son.

So I have decided that on this the tenth day, aware of my incredible weakness, I will finish my “series” with this personal declaration: I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that He is more than I can ever imagine, but in all that He is, He still loves me. He still died for me. And I know He still waits for me to make the right choices so I can enjoy – in fullness – His great plan of happiness.

Truly, I have been grateful for the last ten days of reflection. For it has brought within me an even greater love for my Savior.

Which makes me think maybe the last ten days have been just for me! . . .


  1. I am grateful for them as well, Darla, and have felt of the deep conviction and testimony you have of our Dear Lord and Savior. Some things cannot be expressed adequately in words, but that only gives more depth and breadth to them. I wonder when I have fully laid my "natural man" to a permanent rest and leave this body behind I may then have more ability to express and feel fully what sings so fully in my heart and soul.
    Until then, the mystery of God lays hidden in words so that only those who truly love and seek Him may find Him. Thanks for leading the way, Darla. I admire you, but not just because you are who you are, but because to me, you love the Savior and lead others to Him. I hope you know I have thoroughly enjoyed each of these days even if I have not commented on each of them. They have given a feast for the soul.

  2. Thanks for the past 10 days of insights, Hna K. I may weave them into a talk for the Sunday after Christmas, with your permission, of course.
