Grandmother's Bedroom

Anonymous said... "How has Love changed your life?"

When I was just a little girl, I remember going into my grandmother's bedroom one night so that I could be alone. I closed her door because I didn't want anyone to know I was crying. I knelt down by her empty bed and closed my eyes and began to pray. I don't remember why I was crying but I do remember feeling really very sad.

After some time had passed, I felt a powerful presence in the room and in my heart I was comforted because I knew that Jesus was there. He spoke to what I have since called 'my heart's ears' because His words were heard in my heart even though they weren't heard by my ears. He told me not to be afraid, that He was with me and would be forever.

Later, when I read my Bible, I read Heb. 13:5..."I will never leave you nor forsake you." That promise has empowered me to get through lots of things in my life and I am humbly grateful that He listened to a little girl whose heart was breaking.

His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me! He hears your whispers, He knows all about your quiet, desperate times as well as your highest and most satisfying times. He is a great Big wonderful God!
