Dear Jesus, you gave your life for me,
you suffered for me, you died for me.
And then your Spirit came back to earth,
and now you live within me, sharing my life with me.
I’m not alone.
You’re always here, within.
Yet I fear I may be too accustomed to your presence.
Do I take you for granted? Oh, I hope not.
Dear Jesus, please help me feel the true meaning,
the true power and peace of living with You within me.
I long for a tear.
Those moments when my heart gets a clear glimpse of you within me –
those moments when an un-looked-for tear swells within my eye.
When my heart sees you clearly, my eyes become blurred.
Dear Jesus, oh how I long to see you more clearly;
oh how I long to see the true meaning of You within me;
oh how I long to weep a bucket of tears, for you.
Tears of joy, tears of gratitude, tears of love.
Tears that soften my heart and open me up, to you.
Dear Jesus, I love you more than my dry eyes show.
I long for the moments when I see your true love,
and then my tears show you my true love.
Dear Jesus, thank you for this day, a good day, a Good Friday.
