It's almost three years ago now since I doodled this. I was hungry for God and at this point, I was so frustrated because I had no idea where or how to get a hold of Him. I knew I wanted Jesus...I was so frustrated, scanning the bookshelves over and over again hoping I might find a Bible, but there really wasn't any. Not even a teeny tiny Gideon one.
So, I sat down, took a pen, opened my notebook and began doodling. This is a drawing of me looking at roads ahead, wondering which one leads to the cross. I was very, very desperate for Jesus. I didn't understand why, I was a hater of anything related to church, but for some reason, I.just.wanted.Jesus.
I was staying with my boss and her family and that afternoon, she had gone out to meet a Pastor. When she got back home in the evening, the most amazing thing took place. As she was sharing with me and some others what had happened at the Pastor's place, as she started talking about Jesus, I knew I had found what I was looking for. A week later, I was reborn. I had found my Jesus.
Now, I'm happily walking with my Savior. There are ups and downs, but I have Him now. I have everything I need. "Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine" a song goes. It really is a blessed assurance. I am saved. I am blessed. And he has wonderful plans for me.
I thank God that he chose me. Of all people, I'm one of his chosens. I am truly blessed.
Praise God! ☺
