“You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him – with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation” (1 Peter 1:8, The Message).
Leslie threw her heart, mind and body into one short-term fling after another. She was constantly searching for a prince who would cherish her forever.
And then she encountered *Him.* And by “Him” I mean the God who created her. Leslie had casually known Him for years, but never allowed Him to get close. God saw straight into her soul. Leslie feared He wouldn’t love her if He knew what she had done. But the more time she spent with the Lord, the more Leslie began to understand His love. It melted her heart. With tears coursing down her face, she told Him that her heart belonged to Him.
Leslie encountered Christ and found the love of her life… her Prince… the Prince of peace. If you would like to read Leslie’s love story, go to our web site WOMEN TODAY DOT ORG.
