Another Tag, and some words from my heart

I have been tagged by JIP from

The tag appears rather simple, yet it is not really. One is to write 5 things they dig about Jesus, which most who read my blog would say whats so hard about that Mysti? You love Jesus, your blog revolves around Jesus, why in the world would you have trouble doing this? It is a good question. Naming five things seems hard for me because we are talking about a part of my soul. A part that just is.

This topic is such a close subject to my heart. Jesus is a part of who I am.

My faith in Jesus seems to always have been there. From a very small girl I remember feeling his presence. It was just a knowing deep in my soul that Jesus was always with me. I would actually talk with him when no one was looking. As a young girl I would look at the reflection in a window, or mirror and talk to Jesus, telling him my fears and dreams. I never expected to hear a voice talk back to me out loud, but I would hear his voice in my mind. I would hear answers to my questions, or feel comfort to my fears.

If not for my deep down faith in Jesus I would not be alive now. There have been times in my life when I have not wanted to live and this feeling and presence of Jesus has always kept me from harming myself. Knowing that he was with me, and no matter how bad I felt or how bad the situation was he would guide me through it kept and keeps me alive.

I do not believe in Jesus because of what is written in the bible, nor because some one told me he died for my sins therefore making me saved. I do not believe in Jesus because people have guided me to him or because I went to church. My deep down faith in him is because I "feel" him with me. A genuine knowing deep in my soul that he is real.

He has always just been with me.

Years later when I was guided to church, and then heard about the wonderful sacrifice he made for all people, I thought YES. He is real. I then read about the sacrifice he made for me. I read how no matter how awful a person one was, they were forgiven if they repented and asked him into their life. I never felt a need to ask him into my life, because he was already with me. I felt blessed, and confused, because I wondered why he was always just with me? I later accepted he just was. Maybe he has been with me from the start because I have always needed his protection, love and him guiding me. Maybe I pulled him to my life because I have always felt afraid? Afraid that I can not make it in this world with out him? Which is very true. I still feel that way. If Jesus left my life I would then be so totally lost and afraid.

So what are the 5 things I dig about Jesus?

1. He gives me total and complete love. No matter how awful I feel he is with me.

2. He died for my sins. An act of love so great it brings tears to my eyes.

3. I am never alone as long as Jesus is with me.

4. He completes my life.

5. Everyone can have him in their life. He is not only with me, he is with everyone who asks him into their souls.

Now I am to pick five people to do this.

1. Wight Wing Wadical

2. Adventures of a Jungle Tart

3. Misty from "Thoughts, Emotion and Balance - Can We Have It All?"

Thanks for your comment on my blog and for thinking of me on the tag.

If the tag is solely to indicate "5 things we dig about Jesus", then I may not be up to the task as I am more spiritual than religious, however in appreciation of being thought of by you, I'll respond in the only way that I can, but I'll likely not keep the Tag going, if that's okay. My post may not be immediate though, so check in a few days.

Hi Mysti!
Jesus is a part of my life too. Thanks for tagging me. I'll write soon.

What a lovely tag.

1) Jesus is an expression of God
2) A Being that is gentle
3) Jesus is not selective he loves
4) He teaches us forgiveness to
forgive others and most of all
self. This is so freeing.
5) His teachings of LOVE.
