A Letter From A Grateful Heart

Dear Lord Jesus,

Where do I begin?

How do I type the words that express how much I love you?

I Love you from deep within my soul.

Sometimes I miss you, not because you are not there but simply because I let the business of my life get in the way.

Forgive me.

The day I met you still rings fresh in my memory.  I was just a little girl when I heard the story of how you died for me.  I made my way down the aisle to meet you. I placed  my hand over my heart and invited you in. I still remember hoping you would like my new shoes.

That was such a long time ago but you have been so true to me. So faithful and so tender,  you’ve been there from the beginning of my life and you’ve never left me.

Remember when my father hurt me and my mother abandoned me? I’m sorry I blamed you. Your strength saw me through every painful situation I have faced. Yet there were so many times I reached for someone else to help me and you stood by and loved me still.

When I got carried away with life, marriage, and babies, I forgot that you were wanting to meet with me. Even still you never left my side. I am no longer young and less busy and here you are still pursuing me.

Why do you Love me so much?

There have been more times then I care to remember when I was so un-lovable. But you reached for me and whispered so often how much you loved me. John 3:16 -“For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”   You gave me eternal life even though I didn’t deserve it.

Thank you.

When I was deep in sadness and fearful, you sang over me. Zephaniah 3:17 – “For the lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all of your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

Those songs gave me peace and your words helped me fall asleep.

My heart was so broken for so long but you were near my broken heart. (Paraphrasing)

Psalm 34:18

My wounds were many but you wrapped them up and healing began. (Paraphrasing)

Psalm 147:3

What would I have ever done without you.

I failed at so many things in my life but you were my strength. You always lead me back to you.

I am humbled.

That day when you went to the cross It was for me!  All my life you have been calling me to your heart.

The crimson blood that poured out from you to me, was PURE LOVE.

A love like nothing I have ever known. Your LOVE never punished me, it never made me feel guilty, it never abandoned me, it never demanded something in return.  When I invited you in, you cleansed every part of my sin-filled life. You walked with me and let me come just as I was bruised and broken.

I adore you Jesus.

You are the lover of my soul. There has never been anyone more wonderful than you. On my knees I am amazed here in your presence.  My heart is still.

Once again you speak to me just like you have my whole life.

“My daughter I  love you. I came to earth to make all things new and set the captives free. The world may take me for granted but I still remain the same I am the God who has come to reclaim all who call on my name. ”

If only the world could see you through my eyes, if only they would listen to the truth rather than the lies, then they will know that day you hung on cavalry that it wasn’t just for me.

You gave your life, the greatest sacrifice for anyone who would call on your name. Your promise is that we would never be the same.

Thank you for the cross. Thank you for loving me enough to go to Calvary.

With all my Love, Jamie

One of the greatest life changing decisions I have ever made in my life was to ask Jesus Christ to come into my heart. It was the prayer of a 5-year-old little girl that sounded all of heaven to come. My life has been hard and sometimes painful due to the choices of myself and others but God remained the same. He is not just my savior, he is my Lord.

As we celebrate Easter my prayer for you is that you will see the story of the cross is more than just a religious belief. It was the action of one God who saw you worthy because of his son’s death to welcome you into his kingdom with open arms. I can promise you this,  life without Jesus is no life at all.

Everything  you face or will ever face is for a moment. Eternity is forever. If you have never asked Jesus into your heart, today is your day. A simple prayer that will touch the heart of God.

Dear God,

I know that I am a sinner and I know that you can save me from my sins. Please forgive me for the things I have done. Would you come into my life and live with me forever. I choose you God. Help me to see your plans and purpose for my life in you. I surrender my will to be in your will.

In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

If you prayed that prayer today. Welcome  into The family of God. If you want to send me an email and let me know I’d love to keep you in my prayers.

His Blood Is Alive and is Bringing Healing,

Love, Jamie
