As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, Where is your God? These things I remember as I pour out my soul; how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty One with shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng. Why, soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:1-5
At times Lord this world of ours can seem very dishearten to say the lest, so many only think of themselves, and they do things because they want to feel good right now. But for me my God, I long so deeply to grow closer with you day by day and even hour by hour. To understand and I know that I truly will never know your wonderful unconditional love for me your child. Even thro I have disappointed you so many times in my own life and continue to make the same silly mistakes over and over again, your love for me never changes. As I look at the beauty of your mountains which are a vast beauty yet I know that I can only see a vast portion of the mountains that is before me of your wonderful creation. I long to worship you in Spirit and in Truth so I can try to understand you more with each passing day. My understanding of you God is truly limited, however there are no bounds to me enjoying how much I am loved by you. You reveal yourself to me in countless ways, because I desire to know you more. The Bible tells me in order to know the “Great I Am” I must continue to seek you, and to walk humbly with my God not just for a mere moment, but to do so each and everyday of my life. For every moment of my life here on earth I will continue to seek “The Great I Am” for my soul longs for you my God.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends
As I begin my day with God I meditate on his words as always, as this morning I read from 1 Corinthians 3:16 these words were written by the Apostle Paul to address the problems in the church in Corinth, read these words: Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? Take a moment and think about these words God’s Spirit lives in us (wow) Everything that comes out of our own mouths, everything that we put into the body, as well as anything we seem to do to our own body is a reflection on God, this is how others know who we are not just by us saying that we are a Christian also by our actions and deeds. God’s knows that we are far from perfect and he is a forgiven God and His Spirit that lives in all of us, points out our mistakes and overtime we begin to draw closer to God. God delights in our desire to live steadfastly in his presence. As if we were a tree planted close to him. However, unlike a tree that cannot move we can choose to stay near to him or choose not to. Through God promise to is that never will I leave you, never will I forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5) At times with the problems that overwhelms you or me and you have forgotten these words start looking for ways to remind the promises God has given to all of his children thru his words. God’s Spirit who lives in us, will never leave you or me in the compromised condition. He helps us to remember who we are and more important who he is and that we are a child of the Most High King and that is Jesus Christ. We belong to Him! Returning to God is not a hard task, just simply affirm your trust in his unfailing love for you. As we reconnect with him, remember his love for you washes over all of his children, cleansing, refreshing and filling you and me. No matter how many times we may forget him, God’s love for us will never fail. Continue to grow closer to him, as well to understand that God’s Spirit dwells in us, so he is never far away from any of us.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends.
