Dry and Desolate Places

I am in a desert. It is dry, so wildly dry. I am lost in a world of sand, dust, dead bushes; no life. The sun beats down on me. I am thirsty. I thirst. I long for the Living Water.
I long to find His everlasting oasis and to stay there. Where can I go?
I know He is with me. I know. Lord it doesn't matter which direction I go. It doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is being in You to go with You, to Glorify You. All I long for is Your Voice.. Your presence.. Your arms..
I am in a good place because I hunger and I thirst and I am seeking and I am desperate for You. Draw me to You, Lord. Draw me ever closer. Nothing else matters. Nothing. You are everything.

Let God speak to you. Allow God to reveal himself through others that recognise 'Jesus' in you. I hope you draw nearer to him. You are loved and you need to feel his warmth. God Bless you!

So well said - being hungry and desirous for a closer relationship with Him is the best place to be in our hearts. Because there we will meet Him in a mighty way.

So true - that is what it is all about - drawing nearer to Him.

The past couple of weeks God has reminded me of the power of this verse . .

Matthew 6:33-34 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Those desert times - all times- we are to keep our focus on seeking Him in truth and spirit.
