Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today has been an interesting day, I worked hard and realized a sense of discontentment wash over me . Have you ever wanted more? Out of life? Out of those around you? Out of yourself???? I think I am in this place where my appetite for life has increased and these sub standard servings aren’t cutting it anymore. I think we all come to the place where we desire more of God, more of His plan and to hear more of His Voice.
This evening, the TV was on in my home filling my atmosphere with noise but not truly satisfying my soul. Once again, I was not content. I needed more of God. I turned my TV off, shut my laptop close, and muted my phone- I need to eliminate all other distractions as I persevered into His presence. Like one looking for buried treasure, I sought after the presence of God. When you want something badly enough, you eliminate all hindrances to your goal.
How badly do you want the presence of God? How far would you go to seek after His love? I’ve tasted of His goodness and I’ve experienced His love, so I crave after Him like a dying man craves after water in the desert. I’m thirst after His presence because I love Him dearly.
The church of today have no appetite after God. It’s like we have become so complacent that we take the presence of God for granted. I’m reminded of the scripture that says “Then they will call to me but I will not answer; they will look for me but will not find me ,” Proverbs 1:28. Every moment with the Lord is precious and that’s why I desire more…more time.
Nothing and no one will ever satisfy my soul like Jesus ….
Until next time,
“As a deer longs for streams of water,
so I long for You, God.” Psalm 42:1
