God is knocking, Let Him In
I have recently experienced a life change. I have heard that God calls us and sometimes it takes our darkest days for us to answer his call.
This is what happened in my life. I always believed and loved and feared God. I worried when I was living a life full of sin that if I died I would not experience eternal life. I believed in God and I did not want to disappoint him but I still did, time after time after time.
It took a betrayal by somebody that I allowed myself to love more than I loved my God for me to really reach out to him, to answer his call. I realized that many mistakes were made and in spite of all of them, he still loved me and he still wanted me to love him. I found out that letting God into my heart in a way that I never knew would change my life forever in the best way.
I will never forget the moment that I realized that there was a difference between believing in God and having a relationship with God, hearing him speak to me was the most amazing experience ever. I was washing the dishes, standing at my kitchen sink, and I said, "God, I feel so alone."
This was the first time I felt the answer, not really with words but just a feeling of the Holy Spirit reaching out to me, "You are not alone, I am here." With that the tears of joy started to fall.
"I am so sorry for everything that I have done wrong. I have made so many mistakes. I love you so much Jesus." I said. "I want to live my life for You from now on. Please help me live as You would want me to live."
The waves of forgiveness came over me, I felt His Holy Spirit fill me like a flood of feeling of a weight being lifted off my chest. What a gift that words can not describe. My Heavenly Father loves me and nothing of this world can take that away from me unless I let it. Now in times of uncertainty and fear. I feel sure of His arms around me and his love in my heart.
Romans 10:9 KJV
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
