I’ve been wanting to write this for a long time. It’s the ten-year-anniversary of the day I decided to turn everything over to Christ – and I mean everything! My bank account, my possessions, my thoughts, body, soul, and actions…I trusted it all into His hands. I was so scared… I was sure something terrible would happen to me as soon as I let go of control, and sure that in a matter of time it would turn out to be just another phase. But to my great surprise, here I am, 10 years later, living every day with this wonderful Man who has talked to me through the words of great prophets and songs by Freddie Mercury; who has challenged me to go deeper, farther, and better than before; who has delved and brought out parts of my soul so deep I wouldn’t have believed they existed; who was the only one who ever succeeded in banishing my loneliness. And I am so, so happy that I did it. I’m not kidding, I really am amazed how much I’ve enjoyed it all. Every time the weather turns to Fall, I think about how I’ve spent another year with Jesus, and it fills me with joy to anticipate that, no matter what happens in my future, I will remain with Him.

I pray that you find something of value in these words as I try my best to describe what this bizarre experience is like – that of accepting, then following, Jesus, later in my life than most people start.
