When Jesus Became My Everything

Two things I love to talk about – Jesus and books. Books about Jesus. Ok – yeah – I’ll help promote that book.

So there’s a new book coming out by the name of Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus by Mary DeMuth.  I got an advanced copy when I met Mary at the International Christian Retailing Show in Orlando this summer. She’s a friend of an online friend and I was so excited to make an “in real life” connection with her there. Fast forward to the day I saw Mary announcing she was creating a launch team for this book. I applied and YAY! I got chosen to be on the team.

Mary asked the questions, “When did Jesus become your everything?”. I’m going to answer her question in the form of a video. In the video, I’m hanging out in the basement on the bow flex I haven’t used in way too many months. It seems like a random spot for a video unless you think about what you do with Jesus.

I have access to work out equipment just a few steps away from me every day. It’s waiting there to help me be healthy and strong. I do use the treadmill and the elliptical somewhat regularly, but not the bow flex.

My relationship with Jesus was once very similar to my relationship with the bow flex. I had one, but I didn’t do much with it. But that changed, and Jesus became my everything. Here’s a quick glimpse at how that happened in my life.

About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.
