Jesus showed He knows me
Soon after my ‘born again’ experience, I was in the throes of much-needed emotional healing. I had very little self esteem and always felt unloved, and therefore worked hard to experience folks’ love and affirmation. I had always been a ‘good girl’ as my previous pastor put it.
I was in Edinburgh staying with a friend and feeling tired, so I retired for a read ( I couldn’t get enough Christian materials to read) and rest. I was reading an Amy Carmichael book at the time. Just wanted to finish the page when must have fallen asleep. I saw myself in a gathering of people almost biblical, and I was in a crowd. All of a sudden Jesus walked in, He was dressed in yellow grandad collarless shirt and chinos. He spoke to the person at the front and then started to look amongst the folk there. Then He made His way amongst us really searching. And oh my, He came to me and placed His arm around my shoulders and whispered in my ear “I CHOSE YELLOW FOR YOU.”
With that I woke up with such a sense of peace and His love for me. You see my favourite colour is YELLOW. Probably not many folk would know that, but Jesus did. When I looked at my watch only 20 minutes had passed but I felt as if I had slept for 24 hours.
I felt so loved and amazed at how Jesus showed HE KNOWS ME. Thank you, Jesus, I will never forget that You know me, help me to KNOW YOU MORE.
