A Big Empty Chamber

When I first encountered Jesus and asked Him to come into my heart, I imagined it was like a big empty chamber, cold, full of cobwebs, and oh, so dark.

But Jesus lit a candle of His love, and placed it in a holder that would never be moved or taken away, and He swept out the cobwebs of regret and despair, and filled up the spaces with rows of candle holders, from top to bottom, wherever I looked, they were there.

I wondered why, all these holders with no candles to give light; then I knew He would help me find what was hidden, the very things that would make my heart glowing and bright.

I opened His book, and learned of His ways, and the way He wanted me to live, and a candle of understanding was lit in my heart, His word has so much to give.

I learned how to pray, and more candles were lit, and the light shimmered brighter than before, for the more I learned, the more I could see, and I longed to reach, to have, to be given even more.

Suddenly there were candles of joy, of faith, and of peace, and those for the dreams I had that I hoped would come true, and once they were all lit, I could see standing there, the desire of my heart, my wish fulfilled; the one He gave me to share my love.....and it was you!

I thank God every day for the time it took, to know the things that He wanted me to learn...for until I did, I would never have been ready to accept the love when offered for which I yearned.

The darkness has now been banished, the glow of love fills my heart with light, all the candle holders are filled and lit, and the wonder of it just makes my spirit take flight...for the gift of love He gives me each day is renewed, and it is my special joy to give all the love in my heart to you.
