Once when I was on retreat, we introduced ourselves to each other by answering the question: if you were having lunch with Jesus, what would you ask Him?
I was surprised by the answers – deep and personal, reflecting their doubts and fears. Many wanted to know how to know Him better and if they were doing ok in living their lives.
As I write this blog week after week, I do pray for each of you as readers, but realized this week I have never ask you about your own spiritual journeys and explorations. Some of you do share those in the comments or by email and I love getting to know you better through those connections.
But I am curious who you are and how you want to grow in the Lord.
If you don’t want to share your answers publicly through the comment section, please feel free to send them to me by email (Jeanwise22@gmail.com)
Looking forward to getting to know you better.
What would YOU ask Jesus if given the opportunity?
What do you really want to know that would help you on your spiritual walk?
What spiritual discipline/practice would you like to learn more and apply more to your life?

Love your question, Nick!

Got any internships?

Thank you for all your responses. Interesting ones by email too. Amazing how several of you would just sit at His feet. I do love contemplation and silence but know my yappy mouth and antsy inquisitive mind would too soon blurt out questions. Please keep sending ideas.
I would ask Him to just talk to me, open up his mind—just as he did with the two travelers on their way to Emmaus—one of them said afterward, “Didn’t our hearts burn at His words?”
I am now folowing your blog and invite you to follow mine. God bless and have a great weekend!

Probably nothing. I would just give Him continual praise and thanks for His love for sinners like me.

I think if I knew I was meeting Jesus, I wouldn’t ask anything. I’d just sit with Him and hopefully just by being near Him my soul would know all it needs to.
Wow there are so many things I want to ask Jesus but I know when I get there none of those questions will be on my mind. For I will be praising Him
Jeanie, I think I’d ask, “Why me?” Out of all the many people, what did you see in me to save?
Ha, my word verification is-“kissess.”
