"Because He nailed it I can be brave."

"When I think about what happened on the cross, it makes me live less afraid. To think that God loves us enough to act, to not leave us in the mess we're in! That he'd send Jesus to make things right, so we can know him. He loves us that much, he loves me that much! It's taken me a long time to accept that. However messy or broken we feel, God is for us! God is for me!

That makes me live differently. The God of the universe is with me. I don't have to be afraid. I'm naturally a fearful person and I've had ups and downs and losses and disappointments but the cross shows me that God has not left us alone. I can walk through each day boldly knowing that He's with me!"
