I know its really been a long long time lol I told you guys I'd only post if I felt inspired and here I am filled with inspiration ready to burst out. I'm hoping people will still swing by and check my page out. If not it's quite alright. I'm happy to have my own little space here where I can share with whoever may pass by.
So this post is about a Special Invitation that I made to someone very important in my life. Nope it's not My Mama, My Dad, My Sisters, or my beloved friends. It's Jesus!! I invited him into my heart and my life when I was 17. I will be honest with you I didn't read his love letter (please click for my previous post on the love letter)to me more consistently until I got older. But boy ohhhh boy, through Jesus I was able to find peace and joy that no man or woman on this earth could ever give to me. I'm happy people! Even when things get hard I know that I have a friend in Jesus who led me to a lastly relationship with God. Maybe you have no idea what I'm talking about. Maybe you think I'm this girl on a spiritual high that lives in some la la land! lol But I'm telling you God is real! He listens, he is faithful and he loves you. I've been through ups and downs and okay and golden times. Through all of it God was ALWAYS there for me.
Anywho, I found this little booklet in between my books the other day about what it means to invite Christ into your heart...I thought is was excellent and wanted you to read it. It may seem super long but it's worth reading. So take a deep breath and read on!!!! lol
If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him." [John 14:23, NIV]
One evening I invited Jesus Christ into my heart. What an entrance He made! It was not a spectacular, emotional thing, but very real. Something happened at the very center of my life. He came into the darkness of my heart and turned on the light. He built a fire on the hearth and banished the chill. He started music where there had been stillness, and He filled the emptiness with His own loving, wonderful fellowship. I have never regretted opening the door to Christ and I never will.In the joy of this new relationship I said to Jesus Christ, "Lord, I want this heart of mine to be Yours. I want to have You settle down here and be perfectly at home. Everything I have belongs to You. Let me show You around."
From the dining room we walked into the living room. This room was intimate and comfortable. I liked it. It had a fireplace, overstuffed chairs, a sofa, and a quiet atmosphere.He said, "This is indeed a delightful room. Let us come here often. It is secluded and quiet, and we can fellowship together."Well, as a young Christian I was thrilled. I couldn't think of anything I would rather do than have a few minutes with Christ in close companionship.He promised, "I will be here early every morning. Meet me here, and we will start the day together."So morning after morning, I would come downstairs to the living room. He would take a book of the Bible from the case. We would open it and read together. He would unfold to me the wonder of God's saving truths. My heart sang as He shared the love and the grace He had toward me. These were wonderful times.
