My story was truly an adventure.
There were moments of ups and downs, lefts and rights, and a whole lot in between. My life was almost like a romantic action movie where two men fight over one beautiful, talented, fun, smart, and amazing girl (that would be me). I never knew which guy I would choose. There seemed to be a constant war waging over the possession of my heart.
I knew which One I should choose. I knew which One loved me the most and would be best for me. I had seen Him pay the greatest sacrifice; He had demonstrated a love that was unconditional. He had sent me many letters letting me know of His love for me. But instead of focusing on what was real, I too often got distracted by the “exciting” guy—who truly had no depth of soul. Often, I would make up my mind and choose one of the guys, only to immediately waver in my decision and find myself in a tug-of-war again.
Then, the day came.
I had done it. I made the choice. I chose the One whose love caused Him to leave everything for me. The One who showed real love—sacrificial love—Jesus. Romans 5:8 shows this love when it says, “But God commendeth [displayed] His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” I think it’s important to say that Christ didn’t give His life for me because I was perfect—I was not. But, rather, He gave His life for me because He loved me just the way I was.
Even when I didn’t choose Him or make Him my first love, He loved me. 1 John 4:10 shows this unconditional love when John writes, “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation [payment] for our sins.” He loved me even before I loved Him. See, even though I was a sinner and more often than not chose to go my own way, He willingly went to the cross to purchase the gift of salvation for me. As He hung on the cross for my sins, it was there He gave His life for me. He paid the debt I could not pay.
Jesus Christ (almost like a young man on his knees with a diamond ring in hand) asked me to accept His love in the form of His free gift of salvation. Romans 6:23 speaks about this gift when it says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” He offered me Himself—a far greater gift than any other person could offer. And to that offer, I said yes! I called on Him to be my Lord and Savior.
Now He was my greatest love.
He had my heart, and I had given Him my life. That beautiful relationship was mine to enjoy. I talked to Jesus, listened to stories about Jesus, served Jesus, and shared my story with others.
But the battle raged on. Life was sometimes really hard. There were times something else or someone else would catch my eye, but it was my Savior’s sweet voice that would draw me back. He would remind me that He had a purpose for my life, a new chapter for my story.
Today, because I accepted Him, I’m enjoying everything He promised in the place He prepared for me. Do you know that you, too, can know the love of Jesus? No matter what you have done or where you have been, He wants to have a relationship with you. Romans 10:13 promises, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” He has given His life for you. He wants to save you from the punishment your sins deserve, and He alone is worthy to be the Lord of your life.
He wants to write a new chapter in your story as well.
To accept the free gift of His salvation, call out to Him from your heart. You could pray a prayer like this one: “Dear Jesus, so many things in this life are fighting for my heart and mind. But I recognize that I’m a sinner and no one, except You alone, can save me from this sin debt I owe. I believe You died for me; I believe You rose from the grave; I accept Your free gift of salvation. I desire you, Jesus, to be my Lord.”
My earthly story began on June 19, 1999 and ended on April 5, 2020 but my eternal story continues in heaven in the presence of my Savior. I couldn’t ask for anything better. I never anticipated the end of this chapter here on earth, but I was ready when the next chapter began.
