Imagine myself, in the most worldliest place, tempted 1000 times more than normal, bombarded with images, sounds, visuals.. In addition to it, I have suffering, pain making me to break internally and give up my scruples. The noise, the sound, the flashing images, my past sins, fear of falling into sin,..setting a bad example to others… all falling on me, I m in the dark…, With my heart broken, my mind stunned and my heart tested,… I look upto, and say, ‘Jesus, Save me’.
There I see up above on a narrow road, My Glorious Jesus, opening His lovely arms, and smiling at me, with His words that thunders, He says, ‘Come, my beloved’.
Oh, Amidst all the calamity around me, and devastation and pain,suffering and past temptations, tears leaks from my eyes, With the joy renewed and amplified, with the music blaring in my heart, I fix my eyes on my lovely Jesus, I start to run, like a child running to his mother’s arms… As I run, like a heroine running to embrace a hero( in a bolly wood style n music behind it) I scream with joy running….amidst all that happens around.
Yeah, I say to everything, every long yearned worldly desire like money, fame, fortune, girlfriend etc…., ‘I need Jesus not you!’, With a heart pounding like drums, and my soul ignited with passion, I jump into His arms, and rest my cheeks on His shoulders…
Whoa! Jesus……! Let nothing take me away from you! At my last breath, I should realise I lived as Yours!
Whenever I imagine this, I become strong, Peace beyond all understanding engulfs my being.
