Deeper still

Perhaps I thought
I have taken a plunge too deep
into spaces wide and white
too much time wasted
chasing after
the One, the Only
He that refreshes, soothes, satisfies

Perhaps I need give away more
of me to the world
and instead I have closed the door
to shut out the noise
stopped up my natural ears
to listen to the Spirit
yet what would I have
to give without Him?
Surely I hear Him call me
to this, again and again
as I pick up my pen:

You have been noticing the aroma of frankincense and myrrh when there no anointing oil and you take it as sign that I Am near. 

And yes, here I Am, beside you, inside you, waiting for you also to step inside Me.  There you will indeed feel the beating of My heart, in your blood, in My veins, under your skin, the two of Us as united as I Am with My Father and the Spirit.  This place of abiding where there are no dividing walls.

There is limitless space - climb in deeper.

So deeper I pray, that deeper I go.  For anything good in me is what comes from my place in Him.  Pouring out to be refilled that I may pour again.

What I take from this lovely poem is that I needn't feel guilty for stopping each day to spend time with the Lord (even though I haven't yet today!). Our time totally focused on him can fill us up to share his love with others. Thanks for sharing your beautiful poetry.

Have you ever asked a child to sit down next to you. You tell them to scoot closer, closer. That is what I hear from God and your heart for Him. Thanks for sharing. God Bless.

It sounds like you have prioritized HIM, which outweighs all else. I deeply believe God is the one who moves us and we don't move just to move. We move because He moves us.I totally get you, friend! :)

So incredibly beautiful, especially this:
"There you will indeed feel the beating of My heart, in your blood, in My veins, under your skin, the two of Us as united as I Am with My Father and the Spirit. This place of abiding where there are no dividing walls."
Thank you so much.

"here I Am, beside you, inside you, waiting for you also to step inside Me" - Simply Beautiful - all there, waiting for us to draw closer! I so need to do that, to draw deeper into Him. You so blessed me - reminding me so gently what I need to do!
