Longing For “The Great I Am”

Psalm 42.pngAs 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

Broken Dreams & Broken Promises

Psalm 42.jpgIt has been a difficult day my Lord to say the lease, because when others seem to have forgotten you and what you long for is someone to reach out to say I do care, and truly mean it. For someone else who seems all they want to do is to judge you and you seem to say to yourself, they are not walking in my shoes to understand this deep pain of mine. So I open up your scriptures to read the following words that seem to ring so true for me today.

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, my 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. My soul is downcast within me, therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan the heights of Hermon–from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls, all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me–a prayer to the God of my life. I say to God my Rock, Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy? My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt  me saying to me all day long, “Where is your God.?” Why, my 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.

Dear Lord

Help me in this holy time, at your feet, to pour my soul out to you. Enable me to be transparent. I surrender every burden, fear, question, and emotion. Empty me of myself. Free me from all the clutter in my heart and mind. Consume me with Your Spirit now and everyday of my life.

Amen
