"Longing"






"I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living GOD." Psalm 84:2 NLT


I don't know about any of you, but there are days I long to get away from life's struggles and simply sit at the feet of my Savior! I am longing for another of those days...just me and GOD. I need to soak in HIS presence in the quiet and peacefulness of HIS creation. Though life is crazy, I know HE will be faithful to supply a place and meet this need. HE never abandons me. HE always gives me just what I need!

By HIS mercy and in the very grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

Refreshment, living waters, springs to overflowing ... oh how we need God in our very presence, in this very moment. I, too, welcome those moments, Andrea.
Praying for the time with the LORD for you, for me, for each one of us.
loving you, ~ linda

I especially like your last line, " By HIS mercy and in the very grip of HIS grace, " and that is our true place. Time to be away from life's noise, clutter, and distractions to be with Him, and He can give us all that in the midst of any distractions. Praise Him.

This is what I need to do. Thank you for sharing with us. I feel as though I have lost the month of August and most of this summer. LIFE GOT IN THE WAY.

Jo said...

I just received today in the form of a forwarded E-mail that said, in addition to other inspirations: 'Sit down and have a talk with God'. I like that.

Wonderful way to begin or end a day.

Always lovely stopping by to see you, dear lady.
