Do you still remember when you first gave your heart to God? Was it after many years of God trying to get your attention? Was it dramatic … perhaps not quite like the Apostle Paul ‘s conversion, but still a move of God’s spirit that you will never forget? Or, was it a quiet submission to Him?
I remember the evening of my conversion still to this day. He had been speaking to me over many years. Looking back, I had confessed to know Him, but realize now that it was more “head than heart”. You know the story… went to church growing up … took a detour while in college, but later realized how far I had slipped away while still confessing with my lips that I belonged to Him.
Since then, however, I am happy to say that my “head-knowledge” of God is now a “heart-thing” born out of much nurturing, teaching and guiding by His spirit and those within the body of Christ.
John 6:35 (NIV)
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
Revelation 3:20 (NIV)
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
The following song “All This Time” is a testimony of how Christian artist, Britt Nicole, met Jesus — where she is now, and as she puts it, … and every single moment between. Enjoy this uplifting and upbeat song as you reflect on your relationship with Christ as a new believer, or one who has walked hand-in-hand with Him for many years.
