@OJMCKEE. Your exuberant post just makes me smile all over! What it seems you are describing is the Joy of the Lord. Something that we all know of. Something that you share with all who know and love the Lord. I always say its better than french vanilla ice cream to my soul! The more I know of GOD the more my soul thirst for Him. You can find repeated instances in the Psalms telling how King David reached often for that fellowship. How it was sweeter than the honeycomb.
But the great news is that the joy of the Lord will continue to embrace your life as you cleave to Him. Even better news. You did not save yourself the first time; so don’t worry about doing so a second time. Salvation is the gift given to you from the sacrifice of JESUS and the heart of GOD. Just keep yielding your heart to Him.
Scripture admonishes us to contend for the faith that was once delivered to the Saints. (Jude 1:3.) The love just grows deeper as you continue to seek His face and to know His will for your life. (Matthew 5:6.) Living for the Lord is not anti-climatic after receiving salvation. It is stone upon building stone.
Living will provide many distractions and obstacles to your relationship with JESUS. Rejoice before the Lord whenever you can. Even through the tears, reach for your joy! We will not live here long enough to receive all GOD has for us. But oh the joy as we strive to receive as much as we can.
