I had been praying for a couple of weeks for one of the international students at my school who was on the verge of accepting Jesus into his heart. There wasn’t anything else that my friend, Audri, or I could say to him. It was truly left to God.
Finally, Divahar, the international student, accepted Jesus into his heart. When I talked to Divahar not long after he made his commitment to Christ, he shared with me how he was so excited to see how God is going to use him and how much God has been moving in him. As I listened to him, I could hear the love that he has for Jesus and I wondered when the last time was that I was that passionate about God.
When was the last time that I talked about God like that? When was the last time that I sounded like I was truly in love with God? God really spoke to me, and it made me realize how far I slipped away from him and how much I need him. I was reminded of how much God gives to me, and all he ever asks of me is to love him—with all my heart, all my mind, all my strength, and all my soul for all of the days of my life. And that is what I desire. I desire to love him with everything I am and to serve him with all that I have.
