41. How I Came to Know My Savior
Merry Christmas week!! In this episode, I chose to share with you how I've come to know my Savior. It is personal, deep, and sacred to me. It came through deep pain, personal anguish, and complete surrender, and it's a daily journey. He is the core of who I am - my best friend, confidante, captain, and companion. How do we put God or our Savior first in our lives? I believe we put Him first in our days.
I love the quote from David O. McKay: "We pay too little attention to the value of meditation, a principle of devotion - Meditation is one of the most secret, most sacred doors through which we pass into the presence of the Lord." We all experience the Divine in our own personal ways. He knows us and will connect with us in ways that resonate with us.
What I know for sure is that He is so mindful of us no matter what! He is so forgiving and wants to shower blessings upon us. He desires to be close to us personally. When we go on a journey to connect with Him and surrender our lives to Him, He can make more of our lives than we ever possibly could. He knows we are not perfect. He knows we are human and will make mistakes and stumble. The only thing that matters is that we turn toward Him. Let Him manifest Himself to you in ways that are personal to you.
Throughout all my years of personal development, training, and coaching, what has brought me my greatest transformation has been my knowledge, journey, and relationship with Jesus Christ. He is the core of who I am and everything I do.
The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Aleph - meaning 1 - mighty and powerful. The symbol is an Ox. An ox doesn't carry a load on its own. Oxen work in pairs and are joined by a yoke. In Matthew, it states "Take my yoke upon you....for my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Whenever we join yokes with the Savior, we are promised that we will find rest in our souls. I have discovered this personally.
