get some heart burn

Ok, maybe not heart burn like you might initially think – I’ve got something different in mind. 

I really like Jesus – I like thinking about Him, praying to Him, writing about Him, singing about Him, reading about Him, being w Him, talking about Him – especially.  What really gets to me is to sit w a friend & have an indepth conversation about Jesus, what’s He’s saying, how He’s leading, what He’s challenging us with, experiences w Him . . . . . There’s something that goes off in me when i get to talk in depth w someone i trust about Jesus & what He’s doing in my heart.  There’s something that quickens in my heart when I get to listen to someone deeply share about what He is dealing w them about.  I love getting to hear & be part of what He’s doing on a massive & micro scale – I just like Jesus.

Get some heart burn – talk deeply w a friend about Jesus.

  1. That’s really interesting. Because I always get the same way. I find when I’m depressed or discouraged whenever I start talking about him I just do a 180. Today I was talking to my friend and she was telling me how she had been cutting herself, and I was upset to hear that. But interesting enough it warmed my heart to tell her that I would pray for her and to share my problems aswell. There’s something so special about sharing your difficulties in life, because then it reminds you of how much pain, but how God in the midst of all of that pain, stuck with you, watched over you, and completely changed the whole situation. There’s something about this Jesus :)!
