Who Do I Love?

Since I started this blog, I've written about how much I love my husband & my son, and I do! They are my favorite guys ever! But it occured to me this morning that I haven't written about how dearly I love Jesus. I've decided this needs to be addressed & NOW! :)

Before I became a Christian, I had no idea that God cared about me personally. I was also controlled by fear, which is horrible if you've never "been there & done that".

I had never really heard about how to "accept Christ" but I believed that Romans 6:23 was true. (It says, "Work hard for sin your whole life and your pension is death. But God's gift is real life, eternal life, delivered by Jesus, our Master.") I just believed it was true & told God I wanted to be all His. That was all it took for God. I know that was when He joyfully adopted me as His own dear daughter, a Christian.

Since I have become a Christian, I have learned a lot more about what the Bible says & have gotten to know God more, in a personal way. He has sooooo set me free from being controlled by fear & has helped me, bit by bit, to become a more whole, free and alive woman.

So, for the record, I love my husband, I love my son, I can't wait to love our new little one(s) from Ghana & I am absolutely in LOVE with Jesus!
