One of the scariest but life-transforming day was the day I was asked to come to Jesus. It wasn't that He was scary No, but His holiness made me know I couldn't be perfect enough to be with Him as I was. He paid the way for me to be holy and forgiven because of His death on the cross. I didn't have to earn his love but that He was wanting to be #1 in my life.
Giving up that control and the worldly pleasures I embraced, I resisted the call to come to Him. I was scared to leave them. However, my life was a mess of disappointments, deceit, and depression. I had an appearance of status and happiness I couldn't fake it anymore.
I longed for truth and acceptance. In my search for peace and love, I tried meditation and behavior change which was superficial. It lasted only a moment. But when the quietness was over my mess was back.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you took my challenge. I actually said to God, "If you are real, I will follow you." So many things in this world offer significance, hope, peace, love but ultimately I found that in Christ- having a relationship with my King and Heavenly Father is the only way, the only truth, and the only life.
I am so thankful that someone told me. I hope you can know Him too. He is waiting.
