More God, anyone?

Sometimes, I feel like I am tapping into only a small part of God! This has been the consistent thought rolling around in my mind for the past week... and it's not going away. I believe that the Holy Spirit is patiently persistent! I think God is trying to tell me something...
I am now at the point that I have heard this little voice in my head enough times that I am ready to start doing something about it. But what is a girl to do? I have been a "Christian" since I was a little girl. I have had almost 30 years of time to "tap" into Him more. When I look around me at the condition of the church I wonder, what's wrong. Why is God not bigger in our lives?
First things, first. Be still my soul, I say. He is my center...He is the creator of me. He gives me the confidence to get up and go for it today! ... in me, there is a part of Him.

"So God created human beings in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." Genesis 1:27 NLT

He created us to seek Him, to want more God. Today I repent of any sin or stronghold in my life and invite God in to every part of me... not holding anything (anyone) back for myself. I have great expectations of a great God to show up and make Himself known today!

"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
Jeremiah 29:13 NIV

In a way, I pray that I always feel this way... a longing in my soul, to know Him more.

More God, anyone?

"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation". 1 Peter 1:3 NLT


  1. Awesome! The more you seek God the more you want to just be near him. He never moves and is always the same. Our moods and emotions get the best of us sometimes and we think He's changed because this or that has happened. Always the same, oh praise his name, Jesus never changes, He's always the same! Everyone could stand to have a lot more of God for sure!

    1. Hey Pixels! This reminds me of Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever!" Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is EXACTLY what I want! I love your enthusiasm. I found you via BlogFrog.
