“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20
My dear friend Lisa invited me to a bible study at her parent’s house. It was a cozy setting, a man with his acoustic guitar in hand and the worship began. I’m not sure how many weeks I had attended but this night was special. I physically felt His calling, I later learned that the Holy Spirit was present.
It was an extremely emotional experience. I don’t think I realized what was happening. I did accept Jesus Christ as my Savior. He was knocking, I answered and I’m so grateful.
“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult you with loud singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
I was seeing things about Jesus everywhere I went, it seemed. Maybe I was just more aware or perhaps placed by God’s perfect design. We went yard selling the weekend following and at the first stop, I found a brand new bible in the box. And the next stop was this gorgeous 2ft x 3ft matted pressed paper portrait of Jesus in an elegant gold frame. I was so excited. I felt as if God was telling me, I’ll give you what you need to learn and remember my son. I was ga-ga about God. He was everywhere. The good news is He still is. We can forget to notice because of our fast paced lives. The following are some ways we can keep our enthusiasm and turn our infatuation into long term true love.
5 ways to stay in love with God
- Reading and studying the word
- Prayer and meditation
- Christian music, concerts and events
- Associate with other believers
- Sharing His love with non believers
2 Timothy 1:7 Tells us that God gave a spirit of power, love and self control.
A great verse to keep in our mind’s eye as we making these things a regular part of who we are.
Live brilliantly and thrive.
Love to all, Suni
