The Birth of Christ
by Carl Henrich Bloch
Lord, I am worried about some people in my family with health issues. I am worried if they are taking care of themselves the right way. I am wondering if they will be healed. I am wondering what I can do for them.
Lord, I am worried about my son. Lately he is so whiny and doesn't obey like he should. Is he going to grow up to be a sullen young man?
Lord, my oldest daughter will be going to college in a year!! I am worried if I have raised her in the right way. I am worried about letting her be on her own. Lord, I wonder what else I can do?
Lord, there are so many things to do in a day. I feel like I never get anything done. So much is left unfinished. I know You said Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. Help me see that in my life.
"Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty." A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit." John 19:28-30
Lord, I thank you for the finished work on the cross. All my sins are forgiven and paid for. All my anxieties and worries are already solved. Tetelestai. "It is finished."
