Mark 15:33,34 (KJV)
33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Lord God, I am so grateful for Your sacrifice for sins. Surely, it was nothing You were forced to do but willingly suffered, that we might live. You took every scourge and beating for us. You bled and suffered much by the weight of the nails in Your hands and feet, while being raised on the cross. Knowingly, You took every weight of sin and put it upon Your shoulders for us. We did not deserve such love and compassion, but You showed it anyways. It is because You are such a great and merciful God, that You did not want anyone to go to hell but be forgiven and go to heaven when we die. And You made the way for all of this. Where there was darkness, You shined Your light through it and gave us the path to walk. I am so grateful just to know You, Jesus. I am so grateful that You heard my confessions and had mercy for my soul. I know it is all because of the cross that I am forgiven. Thank You for bearing the weight upon Yourself for my sins. Thank You Lord. I am not capable of living a life that is right in Your sight, but through the Holy Spirit, I am more than able. And through the Spirit, I have my guide. You did not leave any of us comfortless, for You are always there for us. Your presence speaks peace to my heart, mind, and soul. You have given me grace. Thank You Jesus. I love You. Amen.
