The More I Seek You…

This past week has been exceptionally difficult on more levels than I could ever imagine. From worrying about Asher – to my credit card number being stolen – from unexpected bills  – to friends that totally let you down. Ugh.

Our Women’s Bible Group in Haiti is using Beth Moore’s Fruit of the Spirit Study. I have not been able to open it at all this week  – although I have found myself face to the ground – at His feet – more times than I can count. God is definitely teaching me a lot through all these trials. He is showing me unhealthy areas I place my trust and has cried out to me to choose Him and our relationship – above all else.

A group called No Boundaries came to Haiti this past May. They had an amazing singer in their group. She sang this song called –  The More I Seek You.  It was the first time I had ever heard it. This past week bits and pieces of it kept coming back to me but I couldn’t remember the words.  I found myself in tears as I heard that song sang at church today! Talk about a God-Thing!

The more I seek You
The more I find You
The more I find You
The more I love You

(Chorus)
I want to sit at Your feet,
Drink from the cup in Your hand,
Lay back against you and breathe,
Feel Your heartbeat,
This love is so deep,
It’s more than I can stand,
I melt in Your peace,
It’s overwhelming.

Sometimes when we’re right in the throws of things – we forget that we can lean into Him. We don’t always think of putting our hand on His chest and feeling His heartbeat. But to me – it reminds me of how approachable He is. That we can run INTO Him and catch our breath.

I heard a sermon last week that talked about what it will be like when we meet Jesus. He talked about this one HUGE thing – that we will just be in awe of when we see Him. The Bible uses only one word three times in a row – to describe our Jesus. It’s Holy, Holy, Holy.

He brought up this scripture – Rev. 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come”.

This scripture talks about the angels in Heaven having 6 wings – they cover their eyes and their feet – because they are before the Almighty God. They hover around His throne and they constantly are singing over and over again – Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.

We ended the service with that song and as the song finished the preacher said – now let’s just sing that part with the angels in Heaven who are singing this over and over again to the King. I am telling you – I got goosebumps imagining that scene and knowing that I was joining below in that chorus with the angels.

I am just a sinner before my Lord – unworthy of His love, His grace, and His mercy. Yet He is willing to take this toxic girl – and love her with all His heart. He is able to free me – from the burdens of this world and and all my unholiness. In all His goodness – why do we pour ourselves into anything other than Him? Why do we put our energy into anything other than the Holy of Holies? ESPECIALLY – if given the chance – He will welcome us to melt in His peace?

  1. I’m sure you have felt squeezed on all sides. I love your transparency though. It allows us to better know how to pray for you. I needed to hear this myself. I place my trust in many things that are not from above – and HE is the only one who will never let us down.
    Love you.

  2. Love you girl. Been praying for you and Asher. Been at His feet many times – and it’s the best place to be – both in times of good and bad.

  3. I so needed to hear this today! I love it how God uses you and your writings to speak right to me. I can’t tell you how encouraging it is to my spiritual life to watch you overcome the things that are thrown at you. It gives me hope that I can do the same.

  4. Your an inspiration whether you realize it or not.

    Praying for you and your family. The great thing about falling to our knees before Christ is that He will always help us back to our feet. Love thinking about singing with the angels above. Love you guys.
