Ahh, That's All I Ever Wanted

Many years ago, I 'experienced' this image, almost exactly. You see, the little girl, in my experience, was me.

At that time in my life I was in a bad place, an abusive marriage. Although times were tough, I never let go of Jesus. And He never let go of me.

This particular afternoon, my daughter, then twelve or thirteen years old, and I were watching a movie. I wasn't really watching the movie. I remember, laying there staring at the ceiling, thinking. And all of a sudden, I was in another place. And I was me, as a five year old child. And there was Jesus, sitting in a chair. On His right were my two older children, my only children at that time, very excited, on their knees with their hands folded, as if in prayer. I crawled up into His lap, lay my head on His chest, exhaled and said "This is all I ever wanted." Can you just imagine the feeling in me? Such peace and such joy! The security of my Savior's arms around me! I'm overwhelmed, even now, as I speak of it. I was not asleep . My eyes were wide open. I went there. Right into Jesus' lap.

Friend, whatever we go through in this life, our Lord's promises never fail. Hebrews 10:23 says, "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful." So never stop hoping in Him. We may get wrapped up in our circumstance and not hear Him calling. But He will remind us that He is close. And we will hear Him say "Come to me." Matthew 11:28

From there, the blessings overflow.
