Falling In Love With Jesus
There are a lot of mistakes I've made in my life, so many that I've lost count. There are also some good things I consider as accomplishments, things like obtaining undergrad and graduate degrees, live on my own in 3 different major metropolitan cities in 3 different areas of the country. But there is one perfect thing that I count every day that no one can take away from me, that I've done so so right and so proud and assured about, and that is accepting Jesus Christ into my heart as my personal savior. I accepted Jesus at a very young age, but it wasn't until I was a full grown adult that I actually fell in love with Him. Accepting Him is one thing, but falling in love with Him is a WHOLE nother. They are mutually exclusive. It is a totally different situation that can only be understood through a personal eye opening, heart warming, revelation producing experience. And because of the fullness in my heart from being in love with Him, this is the reason I am able to forget the immaturity of my youth and early adult life, let go of my mistakes, my past, and so much so that I truly can't count them, mainly because He doesn't count them. I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus. The blood still works and still has miraculous power!!! There is no doubt in my mind that falling in love with Jesus is truly the best thing I've ever done, and there is no place I'd rather be.
