We love Him, because He first loved us.

1 JOHN 4:19

What would life be without the possibility of knowing and serving the Lord? I lived in that place for 19 years and knew that there was a greater life for me. My mom and dad took me to church on special occasions and that built in my heart an awesome reverence and fear of God.

The moment I heard the Good News preached in its simplicity, I responded to the Lord. I asked Jesus into my life. I then recognized that the Heavenly Father had been talking to my heart since the age of 13. That was when my schoolteacher read The Cross and the Switchblade to our class and I saw the movie Ben Hur.

The Father has loved you all along. He has faithfully been knocking on the door of your heart using all kinds of opportunities to get you to respond to His love.

You will never be able to run away from Him no matter how hard you try. There will always be an individual, a song, a note, a friend – always something, reaching out with His love attached, just for you. You will know that the Father is involved because it is too well planned.

Because His love for us came first, is the reason that He will protect you. He is jealous and wants your affection and attention. Don’t let anything take His place.

His love never runs out or dries up – let Him enfold you with His love.
