I know a woman who has one of the best conversion stories that I have ever heard. No, there were no trumpets. No conks over the head. No visions or miracles. Like many, she grew fed up with her life. One day she simply said:
"Jesus, come into my heart." And He did. Right at that moment. Jesus came into her heart and now she is constantly on fire with love for Him. She attends daily Mass and is a powerful prayer warrior. She has a special quality that I've always admired in others. I call it "holy simplicity" but I think the real term is "purity of heart". God is doing amazing things in her because she is so open to Him. She doesn't sift through her past, call herself unworthy or even worry about sins once they are confessed; she simply accepts Jesus wholeheartedly and follows where He leads. In other words...her eyes are on Him. Constantly.
One might think that she had an easy life and had no "issues". This couldn't be further from the truth. She had plenty! After saying "Jesus, come into my heart" she just knew that none of them mattered. The words "God alone" hit me every time I think about her.
Purity of heart is a great thing.
