More God

"My soul thirsts for You like a parched land." Psalm 143:6

I have been praying that God would show me what to write for a couple of days now.  And every time He leads me to simply share what has been on my heart.  So what I am about to share has been my prayer in my life and I pray that it can become your prayer as well.

My kids love to play outside.  No matter how hot or cold it gets, they love to play outside.  Especially my boys.  There are days when it is so hot that after only thirty or so minutes they come in completely drenched in sweat with their faces beat red, begging for a large glass of ice water.  My husband works on roofs and in the summer time it is much hotter on the roof than on the ground.  He gets dangerously hot and drinks several gallons of water in the work day.  My kids and my husband desperately thirst for something to drink.   

Right now that is how I am feeling about God.  As I sit here typing this I am crying.  I just want more of God.  I want His touch.  I want His love.  I want to feel Him.  I want to hear Him.  The more I get of Him, the more I want.  My soul desperately thirsts for more of Him.  I want and need to feel Him in my quiet time, while taking care of my family, while driving, while resting, in everything I do, I want more of God.  I do not just want His touch and presence as I do my quiet time in the morning or while I am worshipping at church, but all day long.  I want to be aware of Him at all times.  This has been my prayer for myself, my family, and my sweet sisters.  And now I pray this for everyone who will read this blog.  I pray that you thirst for more of God and that He rains His Spirit down on you in a mighty and powerful way. 

Today, simply love on God.  Praise Him.  Crave Him.  Ask God to give you more. 


  1. Not only do I thirst for more of God but I pray our country would thirst for God so we can get closer to Him. Thakks Darling Girl

  2. I have this longing for more of God too. He is stirring up something in our souls. The Word tells us He will be found when we seek Him with all our hearts.

  3. I have the same longing for more of him. I gave up sleep to have time with him. It is only so little to give for want he has for us.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts, I love hearing from you.
