Diary Extract: First Entry
Tuesday 25 July 2006
I was praying this morning and once again found myself sitting with Jesus by a small river in strong daylight. But this time he allowed me to see further on and a group of people having a real laugh. Jen and Claire were there, giggling and carefree. I was absorbed by the image. When I started to focus back on normal life I opened my eyes and they were streaming but these were tears of joy.
Next morning’s prayer time was short but powerful again. I started thinking about how Jesus looks now and as usual the face was sort of obscure but the clothes were gleaming white, pure, brilliant and dazzling. The idea dawned on me that when I really come before him, I am not going to be able to stand in his presence.
Why? Because as I gazed, the power of his love just hit me and I trembled and cried. Only because this awesome person became a man and gave up his life on the cross can I stand before him clean and accepted. If there was no cross, Claire and Jenny would not be with him, safe and happy. This is no small matter for me. All who have put their trust in him will not be disappointed.
