longing for an encounter

Do you long for an encounter with Jesus? Do you just have a deep seeded need to reach out and feel Him?

As Christians we should have this feeling every day of our life. We need to be longing after Him and craving His presence in our lives.

I long for an encounter with Him. I long for His touch. His presence.

I long to feel the weight of the Holy Spirit pressing firmly down on my head. I love the heavy feeling of His Spirit looming over me and the way it takes my breath away.

I ache with an empty hunger for more. More of His Word. More of His Spirit. More of His almighty Presence.

My heart cries out for a fresh touch. One that renews. One that restores. One that reminds me...

Of Who He is...
Of His power..
Of His Love..

A touch that sears my skin and leaves the invisible fingermarks of God behind.

A touch that anoints. A touch that penetrates deeply to the yearning in my spirit.

I long for His embrace. His covering. His sweet mercy.

On my face, I cry out in sheer desperation of the Lifter of my head to minister to the deepest recesses of my being. I want. I seek. I long. I yearn.

For the deep mystery of Him to be revealed to the inner depths of my spirit.

As His presence fills the room, my spirit rejoices! Lord you are good! You are life to us.

Breath on us Oh, God and let your Holy Spirit consume our hearts and light a fire in our souls that we in turn ignite those around us. Let Your fire burn in us and engulf all that we come in contact with . Show us Your Glory!

I, too, long! for the One Who refreshes, the One Who renews and restores, the One Who loves me so, the One Who teaches me and wants to grow me through His Word.

Yes, every day, I SHOULD desire His touch. I pray this longing in me is EVERY DAY!

loving you, Beth,

I long to feel the sense of

- purpose
- assurance
that he had. It was rooted, of course, in the Father.

Welcome to Titus2InAction. You are a great addition.

This is SO beautiful. I rested for a few minutes on "do I long for an encounter with JESUS". Even in my encounters with HIM I want more...I never tire of Him.

I'm humbled by His love and patience with me and I'm thankful.

Thank you for this beautiful sharing dear sister.

Indeed it does....My spirit long for Him...."One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple." (Psalm 27:4)

I find myself the closer I get to Him it's never close enough.
That there is always a longing for more.
