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.

      You have been given the greatest gift there is. Don't throw it away under any circumstances. God has a celestial kingdom, and 'they' are with you also.
