Reach Out And Touch Him

This morning I read this on my calendar...

I want to know You more - to be so close I can see Your love for me in Your eyes.

Isn't that good?!! I was sitting here reading that and thinking about it and a song popped into my head. It's funny really because all of these old songs I remember really didn't mean a thing to me when we used to sing them. They were just words then, but now...I really do want to know HIM more. The song is, Greatest Thing by Mark Pendergrass. Here are some of the lyrics...

The greatest thing in all my life is knowing YOU...I want to know YOU more
The greatest thing in all my life is loving YOU...I want to love YOU more
The greatest thing in all my life is serving YOU...I want to serve YOU more

A couple of days ago I read John 3:30 again. It's a short verse but it is so what I want.

John 3:30

He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.

Then today there was the calendar and then the song that came rushing back into my head! I believe HE was giving me an answer to what I have been praying the last couple of days. I'm thinking that the LORD wants me to go for it! Seek HIM with everything I have. Keep pushing in to HIM. Know...love...and serve HIM more because when it's all said and done...Nothing else matters as much! 

I believe that HE wants that from all of us. To Push in...to be as if we are one with HIM. Really know HIM! Pray and chase after HIM like we never have before. Reach out and take hold of HIM. We can only find good things when we do that. HE's waiting for you right now to talk with HIM.  Just reach out and touch HIM!

Another really old song that fits is this...

Reach Out And Touch The Lord

Reach out and touch the Lord as He passes by.
You'll find He's not to busy to hear your hearts cry.
He's passing by this moment your needs to supply.
Reach out and touch the Lord as He goes by.

This is such an encouraging post Chelle. Stuff has been going on recently making me seek a closer relationship with Jesus and I am reaching out to touch Him more and more. I am seeking His face and longing for a look into those loving eyes!
Love both those songs.

Hi Chelle - John 3v30 is my favourite at the moment because I know more of Him and less of me will change my life and change me.
God bless friend

Hey Chelle thanks for this wonderful post! God has to always reminding me that when I'm falling, it's because I have made my problems too big till I lost focus on Him. The more I rely on Him and the more He is in the center of my life, the more I'll understand Him and trust Him for who He is. Blessings Chelle! :D

Chelle, this is so good! I needed to be reminded of this today. Isn't God so good to show us answers to questions we are seeking?? I never want to lose my focus on him, but sometimes I do. Your post blessed me!

It's sell out, isn't it - selling out to believe that He is REAL. Last fall, I was walking in a park, praying - and He was right there, talking with me, walking with me - and He was REAL. It was like we were walking, arms linked. I wouldn't have found that if I didn't keep stepping closer, closer and closer 0 like your describe pushing into Him.

I so love this message:)
