Just before I met Jesus, a quiet surrender had already taken place. I was exhausted and ready to give up on love.
He finally had my attention, and seized the moment.
He gently swooped me into his arms and told me not to give up. He sweetly whispered in my ear as He took my hand and said, "Come and take a walk with me through the Gospels."
It was there in that quiet, sacred place that I discovered I knew absolutely nothing about love.
And then I looked at God with my big brown eyes and said in my little girl voice, "Teach me how to love. Show me what it means to love and show me what it looks like to love."
And so my journey with Jesus began.
