Real. When did Jesus become real to you? This was a question posed in a book Im reading this week. The book is called the End of Me and it was written by Klye Idleman It really got me thinking and I wanted to talk to you all about it.
So for me, as I’ve shared before Jesus became real when he answered a prayer said alone in the dark with no real expectation. It wasn’t at a rock bottom moment.
It was at a time of genuine confusion and introspection. It was a pleading from my soul to have the experience I had seen in others. Psalms 37: 4 says Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
I had asked God for things before, even to help me change but I was still holding something back.
I think a lot of it was the fact that I was praying for God to help “me” change. God doesn’t need my help and that night He knew the desire of my heart was to be changed.
The day after I prayed that prayer I woke up feeling normal. I went to the conference, got some coffee and filed into the auditorium. As the lights went down and the music came up Jesus became real to me. I remember the moment like it was yesterday.
So I want to know, when did Jesus become real to you?
I want your stories. I want your responses. You can comment here, you can email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook message me.
I’d like to post some of your responses next Monday.
