Foot of the Cross

Music has a way of speaking directly to my heart. At times it can stop me in my tracks and cause me to ponder my very existence. I had this happen while doing the dishes last night. I was listening to Pandora and Ashes To Beauty (Kathryn Scott) came on. I had been sketching earlier and could not get the image of the foot of the cross out of my head. When this song came on it hit me hard. I have included the lyrics below. I love when God reaches out and just says- I am here and I am much bigger than you will ever understand.

At the foot of the cross
Where grace and suffering meet
You have shown me Your love
Through the judgment You received
And You've won my heart
Yes You've won my heart
Now I can Trade these ashes in for beauty
And wear forgiveness like a crown
Coming to kiss the feet of mercy
I lay every burden down
At the foot of the cross
At the foot of the cross
Where I am made complete
You have given me life
Through the death You bore for me
I'm laying every burden down
I'm laying every burden down
