COMING SOON: In Him – in Love – Harriet Sleigh
ARCs AVAILABLE NOW
“Whenever I have met Harriet Sleigh, I always leave knowing I have also met with her Heavenly Father, his son Jesus and with The Holy Spirit! Harriet is a passionate lover of God, a full-on disciple of Jesus, who fearlessly takes any and every opportunity to fervently declare His love, in words and actions to literally all she meets.
It is therefore not at all difficult to recommend In Him – in Love. It is a powerful, true reflection of an intimate and ongoing love story between a beloved daughter and her Saviour and closest friend.
This is a story that can be yours too! Breathe in… ingest deeply these words of Life. Let your heartbeat align with the heartbeat of God. Breathe out and allow God’s love to radically transform your life and that of everyone you encounter.” – David Gilbey, Leader Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer, Chair of Christians Together Chelmsford UK
Christianity is a beautiful love relationship between us and our Lord. We step from knowing that God loves us because the bible says so, to experiencing it as a glorious ongoing reality. This love relationship is as in marriage. Intimate knowledge of our Lord is acquired. We get to know His heart, His will for us and the joy of living our lives as He directs. It motivates us, instils in us a hunger to know and serve Him more and more. As we get to know Him, He becomes increasingly our security. Our confidence in Him grows, so that we know He will not let us down as we do whatever He asks of us. The first commandment is to love Him with all our heart, soul, strength and mind, so that this can be a reality in our lives.
I had not been a Christian for long, when I found the verse, 1Peter 1:8, which reads, ‘whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory’. At that time things were not going too well for me and I thought, I would like to have that ‘joy unspeakable’. What are the conditions? To love and believe in Him. I do believe, so the issue was truly loving Him. If I was in love with someone, I would be thinking of that person all the time, delighting in them, going over precious moments. I decided to do that with my Lord. I remember walking to a neighbouring farm, saying, with enthusiasm, ‘I love You’. I had a distinct warm feeling inside, which I now realize was the Spirit within me delighting in my heart. I walked across the field with a spring in my step—hallelujah! He was encouraging me. The more I thought of Him, and my heart whispered endearments to Him, the more joy welled up from within. When having to do something boring, like a household chore, I would tell Him of my love and that I was doing it for Him, and it no longer was a chore! Now, whatever the circumstance, I know a joy inside. I can love Him always, be in His presence, and the scripture says, in His presence is fullness of joy.
