Today..is my 23rd birthday. 23 is a weird age…still early 20’s…still trying to figure things out. I feel so disconnected. I feel like my sense of community has somehow escaped me. I’m ready for a change…I’m ready to leave Georgia and go on a new adventure… Africa..Greece…maybe Isreal. It’s so hard to stand still when your insides are racing…longing to serve the Nation(s)…longing to see people from all over the world experience Jesus…experiencing the power of the resurrection in their own lives. My heart still beats for music. I know that I know that I KNOW that it is God that put that deep desire in me…forever. We were created to worship…created to have communion with God in the most intimate way. When I think about the opportunity…that God has given me…to usher people into his most precious throne room I am seriously moved to tears. Why me? Why has He choosen me? I often struggle with a sense of self worth (I guess as most women do) so it’s sometimes hard for me to grasp the love that God has for me…His bride. To know that He see’s me as a beautiful picture of purity…walking toward him…unbelievable.
Today…as I sat down to play guitar…an old song crept into my head…I can’t move past it today…it is my hearts cry for this upcoming year…
Lord I want more of You Living water rain down on me Lord I need more of You Living breath of life come fill me up Lord I want more of You Living water rain down on me Lord I need more of You Living breath of life come and fill me up We are hungry We are hungry We are hungry for more of You We are thirsty, oh Jesus We are thirsty for more of You Lord I want more of you Holy Spirit rain down on me Lord I need more of you Living breath of life come and fill me up
What is YOUR heart cry?
