Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is nothing upon the earth that I desire besides You
My flesh and heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
It was a time of worship in my church, eyes closed , hands raised and heart reaching towards God. I was hungry and needy, I needed more of Him. It was those times you know that you know if God gave you everything you desire or even placed the world in your hands, you would feel short changed if He withdrew from you. He is my inner most and my greatest desire and nothing else will do! So, as I worshiped, I remembered reading from this lady who had gone to Katoloni prayer center and on the 7th day, the Lord visited her. That story was too beautiful to say the least and it did more than impress beauty, it aroused a deeper aching for God.
And in the midst of worship and my inner dialogue His gentle soft voice fell on my heart, not audible but unmissable. It fell strongly in my heart and I was reminded, “If you seek me diligently, you will find me” “I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek me” “Take one step towards me and I will take many towards you” and that was an invite I had to take.
[Day one of ascending the mountain of God]
I know that I am going to do this, by His grace and by His grace alone. And I know it’s going to be beautiful. Every time I set apart my time to seek His face, He always makes it memorable.
So, for you aching for more of Him, let’s journey together and share if we may.
When we fast, we say to God, “more than our stomachs want food, our souls want You!”
“The weakness for our hunger for God is not because He is unsavory, but because we keep ourselves stuffed with other things”
“Endless nibbling at the table of the world dulls our hunger for God”
