WHERE DO I START?

The thought occured to me that some of you may be wondering "How do I fall in love with God?" I don't even know where to start in praying, reading, getting to know & growing in Him, but I want to!


"The Son of Man came to seek and save that which was lost" Luke 19:10
"If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
First things first; figure out where your relationship stands. Have you accepted him as your personal savior? Or have you in the past but fallen away from him? If you aren't yet saved, but are curious about doing so, PRAY! Ask Jesus to reveal himself to you. Ask God to help you get to know him. Attend a church or two, do your research and see where he leads you. If you do decide to make that step & invite him to be your personal Lord & Savior, please let me know! There will be a thousand angels rejoicing in Heaven for you!


"Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You. Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in you. For you, O Lord, will bless the righteous. With favor You will surround him as with a shield." Psalm 5:11-12
If you are already a child of the King but have lost your 'fire', pray about that too! My favorite thing about him is the way he is able to change our hearts! Remember that sometimes he changes us immediately, but more often than not it is a growth process. The more of yourself you give to God, the more of himself he gives to you! There are times when I would look at other people who seemed so joyful in the Lord. I would just pray "Lord, I want to love you like that! Help me to fall in love with you! Somedays I don't feel like reading my Bible or praying. Give me that desire in my heart to get to know you, and give me the wisdom to comprehend & remember what I am reading." He loves to reward prayers like this! And don't feel bad about admitting to God that you aren't on fire for Him, he already knows your heart and he is eager to start working on it!

In the meantime, keep doing what you know how to do- keep reading & praying even if you don't 'feel' like it. Surround yourself with other Christians who are in love with the Lord, listen to Christian music & pray, pray, pray! Prayer is so powerful and what an honor it is to have direct communication with the maker of the universe!
