Sony’s Thoughts: Draw Me Nearer
I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice
And it told Thy love to me
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee
An occasional encounter with Jesus is just not enough. I long to walk with Him constantly, feeling His presence and knowing He’s holding my hand. He is my #1 love, the reason I sing, the One who gives me joy in the midst of uncertainty. How I love Him but I know I would be incapable of loving if not for the love that He poured out on me.
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “too Heavenly minded to be any earthly good” but I would say we can’t be any earthly good unless we’re Heavenly minded. I’ve yet to meet the person who is too focused on the Lord that he’s neglecting to be a Light on the earth. If anything, it’s our closeness to God which empowers us to be the witness for Him that this world needs.
Don’t be satisfied with a mediocre relationship–one in which you talk occasionally in order to present your requests to God. Draw near to Him daily, and Scripture has promised that He will in turn draw near to you. As you draw closer to Him, you will sense His presence and you will experience peace. You may even find yourself smiling more as you realize how much He loves you. He desires to be near you but He’s waiting on you. Won’t you take the first step today?
