#39 He Knew My Heart

A year ago I was at a place in my life when my faith was wavering; I had doubts and questions and didn’t feel close to Jesus.

One night, I had an incredibly vivid dream that changed my faith. I was in the middle of an ancient city surrounded by people, and Jesus was standing in the center. Every person there was able to ask Jesus for the one thing they wanted most; when it was finally my turn I asked the Lord something so trivial I can’t even remember what it was. I left the conversation feeling disappointed. As I walked home alone, Jesus stopped me. He had left the mass of people to talk to me alone. He simply looked at me and said, “I know this is not what you want; what you truly want to ask is to know Me more. You want a personal relationship with Me.”

I immediately woke up in awe of the Lord. He knew my heart and spoke to me when He knew I was too timid to ask for what I truly needed.
