MORE THAN A FEELING . . .
I want something more . . .
More than the fluttery of butterflies in my tummy
More than the goosebumps that creep over my body
More than the euphoria that washes over me;
More than the excitement I feel when I’m with You
I want something more
I want something more than a feeling
What I want is to see it.
I want to see it
I want to see Your love for me
I want to have a knowledge of Your love
I want to understand even if it’s just a bit of Your love but I know You desire more than that for me
I want to hear You say how much You love me
I want to taste of Your love
I want to experience Your love
I want Your love to overflow from me to others.
I want something more than feelings . . .
‘cause someday feelings would fade
But when they fade, the understanding and knowledge and experience I have of your love wouldn’t;
It would be there for me to draw upon in the good and the bad days,
In the days where I can’t seem to go on and continue,
In the times when I feel so alone and unloved by those around me
Yes, I want something more
I want to see and know Your love Jesus. I want to experience it.
I don’t know about you guys but right now I just feel that need to know more about God’s love. To grow more in my relationship with Him. Maybe it’s ’cause I’m currently working on the Separated series. . . I don’t really know. Lately, I have felt a little distant from God. Not because He isn’t there anymore, but because I’ve let so many distractions come in the way. Trying to juggle one thing or the other. I remember when I would listen to gospel music and I’m reading the bible and I can feel His presence and it’s like inspiration to write is just pouring down. The excitement I felt was so wonderful!
And that’s what brings me to what I have to share with you all today.
Fam, this Christian race is not based on religion where you just do a thing consistently till you become so familiar with it that you don’t do it with your heart. It’s a way of life. And life is lived with all your mind and heart involved. This Christian race has to do with a relationship with God. Getting to know Him and TALKING to Him! It’s not mere talk and tell Him all you want and need with no thought of hearing from Him. God talks and you would hear Him if you’re patient enough to listen to Him.
He wants you to know more about Him. He wants you to experience His love. Don’t just have a head knowledge. . . have a heart knowledge as well. No matter how much I write about it here in an article or in the different stories. . . It would just be head knowledge unless you experience it for yourself.
Some of you may feel it’s so overrated ‘ Cause you have heard that Jesus loves you or you have read it and there’s nothing more to it. That yeah. . . You know He loves you and you’re nonchalant about it.
Gosh! I know there’s this huge love God has for us. It’s more than words can say or beyond our comprehension because it has us in awe. It’s more than the love a man has for a woman. He’s the One that created marriage after all. He made man for woman. He knows all about the love that exists between a man and a woman. The romance that transpires. . .
But He loves you with a love that …. so how do you experience His love? Getting closer to Him by studying His word; worshiping Him in spirit and truth.
There may be some of you that are yet to come to that realization that Jesus loves you or you are yet to accept the fact that He died for you.
My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:14-19 MSG
