Lord God, ruler of heaven and earth, You are high and lifted far above us. And sometimes we can slip back into that kind of relationship~You so far above us You are unreachable; we call but not from that deep truth-believing spirit at the center of our being, and so we do not reach You. Our words just shout out, then die like fireworks on the 4th of July, dying into the dark ethos of a world of sin and unbelief. BUT You provided an answer when You sent Jesus to us. Jesus God-man came to teach us Your character and ways and the colossal love in which You, our Father, envelop us.
Oh, let me reach the depths of my spirit and allow the peace and quiet joy of Your presence to fill the voids left in my soul by harsh encounters of yesterday. As I bide in the stillness and glean a word, a thought, a way, a feeling of Your love, it fills me with new strength and contentment. Every moment I spend in stillness, listening, always brings communion with You. My heart so hungers for more of You, an ever deepening touch with You, a true union of hearts. I so need Your consolation, word of strength, the assurance of Your love!
Without You I am desolate, so when I hear Your whispering voice calling me to Yourself, I eagerly close out the world to just be with You. Your love is so all encompassing. . . so fulfilling, words cannot fully render meaning to its intensity. But as I am engulfed with Your love and breathe it in, my heart spirals in purest joy!
