More Than Ever Before

More than ever before Lord I love YOU
More than ever before Lord I need YOU
More than ever before I've got to tell YOU
I love YOU now more than ever before

This is a chorus sung by Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir that I think is really beautiful. I was thinking of a specific conversation I had with a friend recently when the LORD brought this song to memory. We mentioned about how hard it is to just find time to have quiet time with the LORD. To just sit. . . read the Word . . . talk with HIM and give HIM time to talk with us. How much better does your day go when you do this? Sometimes we really don't have time in the morning but we can make time at some other point in the day. We need this time with HIM. HE refreshes us . . . gives us a better perspective on what's going on in our lives . . . HE really ministers to our souls. We . . . need . . . this . . . time . . . with . . . HIM!

FATHER GOD today just give each of us the little nudge we need to take time out for YOU. Help us to talk to YOU . . . worship and praise YOU . . . and simply sit at YOUR feet and listen to what YOU have to say to us.
YOU are wonderful LORD. YOU are everything to us. Without YOU we couldn't survive. We Love YOU LORD more than life. Thank YOU for all that YOU do for us. In JESUS name we pray . . . Amen.

Absolutely AMEN to everything you have said Chelle. It is beautiful how these songs speak to us isn't it? It's because the ones who write them feel the same about our Father in Jesus as we do. The common factor in our lovely Lord Jesus is the love of God. Who cannot love Him back and want to sing about it?

Ahh Chelle - you have said something that is so vital ~ something I know I am called to do. Today. Now. And forever. Amen.

I absolutely need my daily quiet time. I set my alarm for 5 am so I can keep this appointment with the Lord. My day is not the same without it.

Btw, I have been to the Brooklyn Tabernacle several times on visits to NYC. I love their music and Jim Cymbala is an incredible pastor. He believes in the power of prayer. It was an amazing experience.

Blessings and love,
Debbie
