There is never a day I want to go not thirsty for my God. I NEED Him everyday, every minute and second. I wake up needing guidance and encouragement for my day ahead for I do not know what all lies ahead. I need my spirit man to be lined up with His. How to walk, talk, teach, love, lead, encourage, pray, listen. I want to be more like Jesus. How I feel like crying right now… not out of sadness but out of love and desperation to keep Him near me. To commune with Him.
Crawl, walk and run……
I praise the Lord for you all that are living and breathing. Today is a new day to make better choices, to give one’s life for Him, to turn back to Him if you’ve strayed away, to forgive someone and to be forgiven. It’s a new day with endless possibilities all because the Father above breathed life into you on this very day for a purpose.
Crawl, walk and run….
Will you seek Him out? Will you take every measure you can to allow your soul to be watered and revived? God bless you today dear hearts. Be encouraged with this life you have. The Lord awaits your presence to spend time with Him. Give Him glory and honor. Allow His very presence to fill you up to the point that it overflows. Doing so, the love of God pours out to the person next to you and next to them. Prayerfully many will partake and be filled too.
There will always be something different about that person who loves the Lord and seeks Him out. That something will cause others to wonder what and why and how about you. That sweet fragrance name is: Jesus. I want that sweet smelling fragrance to be poured all over me. I want my life to reflect Him and his love.
Don’t you? However you can get there just get there. Don’t allow anything or anyone to hold you back.
You know… I just can’t go a day without Jesus in my life. Every aspect of it. I have been singing “How He Loves Us” by David Crowder Band since around 6 a.m. On repeat. Oh how my body cries out in adoration of the King. The lover of my soul. Sweet Jesus. Praises I will sing all my days.
Sometimes reading or drinking my tea is hard to do when all that my body and soul craves for is worship. All I want to do is lift up my hands and give Him the glory and honor, to stand in awe of my Savior because he is jealous for me and His love is abounding.
Psalms 143:8 NKJV Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.
Dear friends I encourage you today to give yourself in its entirety to the Lord. Allow Him to lead you and your day. Let His ways and thoughts become yours when you arise in the morning. If you accomplish nothing more than being before the Lord then you have done plenty. Too often we become consumed with this and that and forgetting about “the better part”. Spending time with I Am that I Am.
I tend to share often a scripture that I hold dear and it’s one that encourages me to see beyond my thoughts and plans because I know that God has far better for me. Plans that go beyond what I could imagine or see. He’s so amazing.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
May today be a new day. One of better beginnings and endings. In Christ. We surely cannot go wrong…. I’ve tried Him for myself. Blessings and an abundance of love from me to you always.
