Spiritual Sunday. "More"



Thank-you Charlotte and Ginger for doing these Spiritual Sundays. It helps me focus on what God is doing in my life and I love to read what He's doing in the lives of others. Anyone wanting to participate post what's on your heart and then add your name @http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/

All week my girls kept asking what I wanted for Christmas. I couldn't come up with anything. I had no idea what I wanted. When we were in the stores today, my oldest kept pointing out stuff ....but I didn't see anything I really needed or even wanted. 
It finally dawned on me - I have what I really want: my family, my friends and most of all - God. My daughter's words keep going over in my head. "tell me what you want or what you want more of."


What I want - what I really need - is more of Him. The touch of His gentle love makes me strong. It gives me hope - fills me with courage - calms me down - And makes me really happy.  
I know what I want - I want more of Him.

Charlotte said...

I never thought I would see the day when I didn't need anything. That has been the case for quite a few years now though. I was thinking in material terms when I thought I didn't need anything. I did need - and want - more of Him. Thank you for this reminder. I've heard you can never have too much of a good thing. I know you can never have too much of Jesus.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Hi Sarah,

I became a follower of yours today via Andrea's posting at her site and coming over here to meet you. I am deeply touched by your life's story.

I am in full agreement with you sister in saying, "What I want - what I really need - is more of Him. The touch of His gentle love makes me strong. It gives me hope - fills me with courage - calms me down - And makes me really happy. I know what I want - I want more of Him."
Yes, Yes, Yes that is what I want too, so very, very much.

Merry Christmas new friend and sister. I'll be back to visit you again.

I would be honored if you come and visit me at my site and if you feel led, to become a follower of mine as well. God has truly placed all of us together and I thank Him with all of my heart.

Love, Peace, Blessings & Prayers,
Alleluiabelle

A Little Of This And That said...

I love this post, Sarah. So true, so true. Reminded me of a song we used to sing:

More of You. More of You.
I've had all, but what I need is just more of You.
Of things I've had my fill,
And yet I hunger still.
Empty and bare,
Lord, hear my prayer for more of You.

As always, God has a way about Him! Thanks dear one for sharing. Blessings and hugs....
