Jesus Loves Me. This I Know.

I've been waiting to write this post because, well honestly, I didn't know if I'd have the strength.  However, there are about a million things on my list that I'd like to blog about right now, and if I don't get it done, I'll forget. I'm not getting any younger, ya know. 

I'm literally sitting here right now willing the words to flow from my fingertips. Not because I don't have a lot to say, but because I don't know that it can be expressed through words. You see, my life has changed. Call me a Jesus Freak. Call me a Bible Thumper. Call me Sinner. All of it would be true. The Lord has taken over my life, y'all, and I'm climbing a mountain  sitting at my computer to shout it to the world!
Our sweet friends, Mandy and Penny.

My mom and me

I was born and raised a Methodist girl. I went to Sunday School, Children's Church, Youth Group. I know the Bible. I can recite verses. I can tell you the ten commandments about as fast as I can break them. But you just don't know Jesus until you KNOW Jesus.  

He crept up on me in the huge auditorium filled with 9,000 other women, and He slapped me in the face hugged me fiercely. He has not let go. I'm on quest. A Bible quest. I want to read more, know more, speak more, show more, love more, let go more. Y'all, He has made me want to let go! My little OCD personality just doesn't know what to do with itself. And I feel sorry for it.

9,000 women there to praise the Lord!

My mom asked me the other day if I had changed something about myself, and I told her that "it was just the glow of the Lord in me."  

I hope His arms continue to hug me. This girl may be ready to let go of a lot, but she is not ready to let go of Him. 

Mrs. Beth Moore herself! We got to have our picture taken with her! She is so blessed  with a gift to share the Lord's word.

Psalms 40:1-3
I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him.
