- Your words were found, and I ate them, And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; For I am called by Your name, O LORD God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16 NKJVThe first time I saw my wife I was attracted to her. We were students in Bible school, and I was introduced to her in the school cafeteria during the lunch hour.After our brief visit, I knew that I wanted to talk with her again. I arranged for a triple date with some other friends. The date was a picnic in the country. It turned out to be a big hit, and I knew that I wanted to keep seeing her.The more I knew her, the more I wanted to know her. In order to find out if she felt the same way about me, I would sometimes ask one of her close friends if she ever said anything about me. Whenever I heard something positive or encouraging it would make my day. My hopes soared, my confidence increased, and my heart grew closer to hers.He doesn't say: Get away from Me. He says: "Come to Me."He doesn't say: What I have to give is not available to you. He says: "Abide in Me."He doesn't say: You'll have to make it on your own. He says: "I am your Shepherd."He doesn't say: You'll have to figure things out for yourself. He says: "I am the Truth."He doesn't say: I never want to see you. He says: "Follow Me."He doesn't say: I will cut you off from My blessings. He says: "Come to Me and drink."He doesn't say: I cannot use you. He says: "I will make you fishers of men."He doesn't say: Give Me a good reason to love you. He says: "I love you."He doesn't say: You don't fit in My circle. He says: "I have called you friend."He doesn't say: You are of no interest to Me. He says: I have prayed for you."He doesn't say: You will not be welcome in heaven. He says: "I go to prepare a place for you."
