(This is post 12 in a series that started here).
When I was a little child, I very simply accepted that Jesus loves me. "Yes Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so."
And when I prayed, I started my prayers with, "Dear Jesus."
It was so simple and uncomplicated. Of course Jesus is real. Of course Jesus is active in my life. Of course Jesus loves me. I'm His little child. I'm His little lamb.
I'm much older now, and I've spent many years trying to make it more complicated. But really, it isn't. Thank You for revealing Yourself to me again, dear Jesus. Simply. Again.
Yes, Jesus loves me. Nothing has changed. I guess I just got in the way, let other things get in the way. Forgot the pictures, or thought that I'm too mature and deep for them now.
But I'm back.
Dear Jesus. Thank You for loving me. I love You, too. Amen. :-)
