I Fell in Love with Jesus!

I want to take the time to testify about how I fell in love with Jesus Christ. It all started when I was 12 years old, when my uncle let me watch a movie called, “A Thief in the Night.” After that my awareness of Jesus and my pursuit toward living for him started. I couldn’t sleep for days after that LOL, it was like I was awakened LITERALLY (Insider, hehe). I started to look for Jesus, so He started speaking to me and showing me things. At that time I didn’t live for him wholeheartedly like I should have. I lived according to what I was taught, and I am very grateful for that because, in that; I learned how to be faithful to God’s house. Around that time, in high school, I kept saying to myself, “There has to be more than this!”. So I started asking God to give me a real desire to live for Him, and I never stopped that prayer until I received it. Then during my first year in college, my roommate shared her experience of receiving the Holy Ghost with me. I didn’t understand then, because I never heard of that experience until I started to seek more and more years later. However, a seed was planted. In my early adult years, I kept on trying, I kept seeking and through it all Jesus never left me. He kept speaking to me. I loved Jesus for sure, but I wasn’t “in love” with Him. Then, in 2008, I received “THE CALL”! Jesus spoke audibly to me when He called me to do His work! Still I wasn’t “in love” yet. In 2009 I learned how to devote my time to Jesus, and His voice was even clearer. By 2010 I was planted into a church, Abundant Life Ministries, to be exact! (Turns out they had the truth all along 😉.) There, I learned how to pray effectively, I learned how to fast, how to live a holy life, what it meant to worship in spirit and in truth, I learned the oneness of God, and what that meant, I learned how to be obedient to my leaders, and the list goes on. Finally, in June of 2011, I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost 🙌🏾! And that moment is when I completely fell in love with Jesus! I was completely consumed and I literally got weak in the knees. Jesus swept me off my feet that day 🥰. At that point is when I received the power to truly live the way I was being taught to live. I was completely sold out for Jesus! Anything He asked me, I did! I didn’t move unless He told me. I moved when He told me. Was it hard sometimes? YES! I lost relationships, friends, family, even the one I thought I was going to spend my life with. But I was in love with Jesus, so only what was pleasing to Him is what I wanted. Even if at times it felt like death! But that’s what I had to do, I had to die out! But make no mistake about it, the blessings that came with putting Jesus first above all else are STILL overflowing in my life today in 2021! I came to find that John 14:23 (KJV) was true, it says, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”


FALLING IN LOVE WITH JESUS

WAS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER DONE!
