Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your soul and all of your strength.”  Deuteronomy 6:5

Something so awesome happened while doing bible study homework.  The question was, “What is God’s great commandment?”  The answer is in Deuteronomy 6:5.  The amazing thing was that the words literally jumped off the page and pierced my heart!

I was so overwhelmed.  It took awhile to process what was happening.  I tried to recall if I had ever learned the great commandment in Catholic school.  The one thing I did remember was that I was made to know God, to love Him and to serve Him.

If you had asked me if I loved God I would have said, “Yes,” but the love I had was casual.  I took it for granted.  God was way up there and loved me, and I was way down here and loved Him.

Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will enter and dine with him.”  The Lord was knocking on my heart, and I finally heard and opened my heart.

I say this prayer every day:  Lord Jesus Christ, I need you, believe in you and want you in my life.  I invite you, Jesus, to come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior.  Fill me with your Holy Spirit.  Please heal, strengthen, guide and direct me.  I love you Jesus.
