Linking up with Karen at Tuesday at Ten: Love is the prompt.
My heart belongs to God. I accepted Jesus as a child. I was eleven years old. Sitting under an Oak tree in the heat of the summer, I could hear the message that if I had ever told a lie or if I had been mean to my friends or if I had talked back to my mom or dad, I am a sinner and I need Jesus. I love Jesus at this time, I was baptized at eight-years-old. Something was different this time, feeling little prickles on my neck, some tingling in my hands, feeling as if the Holy Spirit calling my name, I bowed my head. Asking God, right there under the tree, I said I am a sinner, I’ve done many things I am not proud of and I am sorry will you forgive me Lord Jesus. A peace washed over me and that night I told my counselor and the pastor at camp. Nervously, I returned home to tell my mom and dad that I truly accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
Now that I am older, I cherish this relationship I have with God. I seek Him daily. I know that I love God because He first loved me. I will serve God, loving and being loved for eternity. God took my heart of stone and gave me a new heart one of love. Beloved, if you have any questions about being a child of God, please send me a message and if you do not have God’s Love Letter the Bible, I would count it all joy to buy you one, my email is email@example.com.
