I found this is from the book,

Everyday Blessings – 365 Days of Inspirational Thoughts
from Max Lucado

It knocked my socks off so I KNEW I had to share it with you! Enjoy!

“God’s strong name is our help.” ~Psalm 124:8, The Message

“You have a ticket to heaven no thief can take,
an eternal home no divorce can break.
Every sin of your life has been cast to the sea.
Every mistake you’ve made is nailed to the tree.
You’re blood-bought and heaven-made.
A child of God-forever saved.
So be grateful, joyful-for isn’t it true?
What you don’t have is much less
than what you do.”

That was simply POWERFUL!


  1. Every sin of your life has been cast to the sea.
    What a STATMENT!

    You’re blood-bought and heaven-made. That sentence tells it the best.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. That sure makes you pause & remember what it is that we DO have! Thank you!
