Stirring the Waters

Living Water swallow me
Deepest river wash me clean
Jesus, Savior more of thee
Jesus, more of thee
Come and ruin me with your love
So no other is enough
Come and leave your mark on me
Jesus more of thee!
-"Friend For Life"--Watermark

"Thou art the God of the early mornings, the god of the late at nights, the god of the mountain peaks, and the God of the sea;
but, my God, my soul has further horizons than the early mornings,
deeper darkness than the nights of earth, higher peaks than any mountain peaks, greater depths than any sea in nature-thou are the God of all these, be my God. I cannot reach ot the heights or to the depths; there are motives I cannot trace, dreams I cannot get at-my God, search me out."
-Oswald Chambers

The only thing that makes my heart come alive to the deepest part is searching out the Holy. All I want are clean hands, a pure heart, to be righteous, to be meek and lowly, to be humble in act and thought, to look on with mercy, to promote peace, and love in an undivided manner.
All I want is the knowledge of the Holy. I want something worth my time. Something that will transfer with me into the age to come. Everything else will fade away but what I know of His ways, the Kingdom view, the spiritual world-what I know about the one I call my Beloved and my Friend-that is what will follow me and be built upon in the age to come. There is no waste, no sacrifice in searching Him out and loving Him with my whole heart. He is worth the leaving, worth the "goodbye". There is a stirring inside of my soul. One that I cannot put away for another year, for another time. The time is now. If I do not let it, I fear it may be something I come to possibly regret...

What is this? What do I want? Where do I want to go? I have the freedom to go, I have the freedom to do whatever I want. No strings attached to anyone or anything. I can go wherever I want with whomever I want, meet whomever I want to meet. Whatever I will trade for the knowledge of the Holy-I willingly trade.

"God nowhere tell sus to give up things for the sake of giving them up. He tells us to give them up for the only thing worth having-life with Himself."-Oswald Chambers

I know that I'll be taken care of wherever I go. Even if I go very, very, very alone.
Matt 6:25-32 7:11
Luke 11: 9-10
Luke 12:3-7, 22-39
