The Back Door

Looking thru the back door. . .
As a kid we came and went through the back door of our home. It was glass paneled and we could see in. (I also accidentally broke one panel with my knee, when I got too impatient one day.) My door looked in on the the landing, the basement stairs and beginning of stairs going up to the kitchen. Not much to see, but it was the familiar entrance to our home.

Sometimes I look at my life through the back door; If there’s nothing new and exciting to see, at least it’s familiar~ like I know what’s in the basement. I know the kitchen with two exits: one to the dining room, one to the hallway. It’s been many years since I lived there, yet the familiarity remains. It led me to the question~ Does my relationship with God have an old familiar feel to it too? is there anything new and exciting in it?

As a child my family moved us on to a larger home where we entered and exited through the front door. It had a woods in back of it. (My Daddy did not like them cutting down our old woods and building houses in our back yard either. Previous blog) So our new home had a great woods where we could take walks together through the trees. The path would wind through patches of wild flowers, and in the Fall I loved how the falling leaves created a carpet on the ground.

My relationship with God has moved on as well. With maturity I’ve grown to know Him on a personal level. I know now I'm His precious daughter.

Father God introduced me to Jesus in a special way where Jesus and I grew to know each other well. My Savior and my King of Kings, how awesome is that! He loves me so much He died on a cross for me and made the way for my eternity in heaven with Him. He wanted me with Him so much He took the punishment for my sins to make that possible. I accepted His gift and asked Him to live in my heart forever. Jesus sent Holy Spirit to indwell me.

2 Peter 1:3-4
For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue).
4 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.


Now Holy Spirit lives His life in me teaching me, guiding me, and keeping me safe. You see, Holy Spirit loves me too, so He takes care of me. I have my own personal mentor living inside of me, and He is God.


So have you also grown on from childhood familiarity with God to knowing Him on an intimate level? If you’ve yet to take the journey, don’t delay. It’s a joyful walk and time is short. You can experience the personal love of God for yourself! He claims you and calls you by name:



Isaiah 43:1 . . . Fear not, for I have redeemed you
[ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives];
I have called you by your name; you are Mine.
