From time to time, I Bible journal. I really enjoy it! This is from an entry I did from two weeks ago. It was my “Jesus moment”. Faith is very new to me. I was raised Christian, but became a non-believer for almost 15 years. I always wanted to go back, but it just didn’t make sense. I was almost jealous of those who could just believe in something so strongly that I didn’t feel or see.
About a month and half ago, I had a dream that I went to church. I ran with it! I texted my friend Laura to find out if I could go with her. I’ve been every Sunday since and even attended Bible study and service on Tuesdays. I feel like a new, uplifted person. Thank you, Jesus!
On this path, I discovered a beautiful song called “Come to the River” by Housefires. The song burned in my soul and gave me chills. As I was working through my Bible Study the next day, Isaiah 55 came up.
“Come, everyone who is thristy, come to the waters.”
There was this song, that I had learned about the day before, clearly in the verse I was just supposed to read… or should I say this was the scripture that inspired this song. Chills ran over me and I started to cry. It might seem like a coincidence, I know it is a common verse, but it was much more. It was Jesus letting me know that I’m finally on His path. I was so overcome with emotions. Joy, fear, relief all sprang from my eyes. I finally see the truth, and it is Jesus’ truth. Hallelujah!
Here is the video of the song. Listen to the song and read Isaiah 55. It still moves me even weeks later!
