There's Room in My Heart
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him and he with me.” ~ Revelation 3:20
Jesus knocks. I invite Him into my heart. I’m very happy He’s here. I begin to show Him around. It is comfortable and warm in my heart. He tells me that my heart is soft and pliable and that is good. But then He looks around a bit more. There are windows on each wall that portray nature in all its glory. There are chairs under each window—big comfortable, soft chairs. These are there for me to be comfortable while I watch the world. I’m happy with God’s creation of the world—it brings me joy. But I stay too comfortable looking out of those windows.
Jesus says to me, “My child, arise and go forth. Do what I’ve always called you to do. Be a light in this dark world. Go.”
I gulp and swallow a lump of fear. He takes my hand and says that He’ll be with me. I smile and go.
