Do you remember the first time?

she remembers the first time
As the crowd looked on
With hate in their eyes, their hearts full of self-righteous indignation
His head was bent as he wrote in the sand
and when He looked up, she saw love in His eyes
feeling unworthy she looked down
and saw he had written 'forgiven'

he remembers the first time
the toil the night before with no results
there was something about the way He spoke
the authority in His words, the passion in His heart
the greatest miracle that day didn't have anything to do with fish
for when He changed his name
he knew he would never be the same

she remembers the first time
there had been so many people
pushing and shoving
trying to get close to Him
but not understanding His power
though frightened, she surged forward to touch Him
and she experienced His healing

i remember the first time
His first words
I imagined the look in His eyes
as He said to me
"Come just as you are,
You don't have to be afraid anymore
I love you with an everlasting love"

What about you? Do you remember your first time? It's easy to get caught up with the hustle and bustle of life and forget it's not about religion but relationship. You can't help knowing the Lord without loving Him. He's just that type of person. Encounters with Him don't always come with peals of thunder and bouts of lightening but we can always make them memorable. Leave the place of prayer today with something special in your heart and keep it with you as you go through the day.

Don't forget to keep smiling

Remain blessed and highly favoured

I too remember that first time. The first time He told me I need not carry the shame anymore. That first time He told me He had forgiven and forgotten my sins. That first time He told me He has given me a new begining, filled with favour, for He had loved me with an everlasting Love. That first Time He refused to let me go, Telling me He will and can never leave me or forsake me. That first time Ifelt His pain, becaue He had given me His love and I had rejected Him. That first time, I no longer wanted to live, because of how I had spent my whole life breaking His heart, and how Unworthy of His time, attention, goodness, faithfulness, forgiveness, His awsomeness. That first time.

I thank you God, that YOU HAVE REFUSED to treat me as my sins deserve, but have instead covered me in gladness, glory and UNCONDITIONAL Love.

Father I thank you. Father I worship you. Lord I glorify you. For you alone are worthy of my/all our praises. For you are in deed a Good God. Thank You Lord.

i get that way so many times and what amazes me the most is that He just won't give up on me. He won't let me go. I remember the first time, what i'm grateful for is that several times after that first time, He still looks at me the same way and forgives me. I love Him.

My sis. Forgive me, like you said , i am in a "crazy" season. I am usually used to God calming the storm, but this time, he had to let the storm rage and Calm his Child (me).

My Alabaster Box....

Everytime i remember the night he found me and his loving arms all around me i reach into my alabaster box and bring out my precious oil and wash his feet with my tears and dry them with my hair and oil them.

I pray i use my alabaster box often.

Thank God for his grace and love I am a living testimony of that and all that he is. Hey, may the good Lord bless you in ways you never imagined, he gave you a seed, you planted, he nurtured, what do you know it's a blossoming tree. He loves us all, in the midst of the storm, we should try to listen, he's there, that alone should give us the courage and strength to walk thru.

@ all: Thank you for your wonderful comments. They always bless my heart.

Sometimes in life we have to go back to go forward. May the spark ignited that first time grow into a fire that keeps burning bright for the Master.
