Having come to a place in my life where I’m full but I’ve not satisfied
this longing to have more of the presence of Jesus fill the depth of my soul.
And I can feel it with a fullness that my heart is convinced it must be all of Him and nothing less as He is my righteousness. Aside from this relentless pursuit of being fully in His love, the heart cannot rest. Only by walking in the Spirit and giving no place to the flesh can one ever pass the test that comes with living life. Abide in him as His Word abides in you is what I would say unto you.
I’m thirsty as my soul can’t be quenched and He already knows that after Him I must relentlessly pursue and go wherever He wants me to to go and do whatever He asks me of me. To only be about the Father’s business and everything else I must let go.
I have to ask him continually to dismantle the containment that I have tried to place Him in. It is only His love that teaches who He is once again, taking me back to the place where my heart was only about Him and all I wanted was just to be with Him fully present. Positioning me where the things of this world grow strangely dim in the light of His goodness and grace as I relentlessly run this race with only finishing well being worn as bands upon my mind.
It doesn’t matter what it looks like or what I feel or see, for the only thing I can cling to is His promises to me. I am His, and so what else matters? When the waves of the sea crash over me, it matters not whether I seem to sink or swim because in a beautiful way I need to be reminded that I’m in over my head lest I forget that it is always about Him and not to be about me. This I am made to more and more see, that in Him I am always so forever free. Is there any other way to truly desire to be?
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
(Luke 4:18,19 ESV)
In this world, as a voice in the wilderness, crying; preparing the way of the Lord;
making straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” This is the mission of the messenger who comes to solely serve the Master. To fulfill living to live abundantly, to love endlessly. To be as Jesus is, to embody the Father’s heart. What else can it it be as the temporal continually fades and passes, only the Word of God abides forever. He or she therein continually abides living for the eternal which never perishes and knows no end.
All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the Lord blows on it; surely the people are grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
(Isaiah 40:6-8 ESV)
Who am I that the highest King would welcome me? I was lost but He brought me in.
Oh His love for me is everything. I’m a child of God, yes I am.
In my Father’s house there’s a place for me, I’m a child of God, yes I am.
I sing unto the Lord a new song; “I am chosen, not forsaken, I am who You say I am.
You are for me, not against me, I am who You say I am” This is my story and song which unto my Saviour, I praise all the day long.
To what or whom does your story speak and in your heart what is your song?
Will you choose to live to live to love, all the day long?
