"Cry After" God

When was the last time you "cried after?" You know- cried after someone? Cried after a loss? Cried after? I mean cried. There have been times that I wasted precious tears - although at the time it really did seem important. Keep always in mind that every loss deserves a grief. Okay let's move on.

The other morning the Lord showed me how that energy could be used for something more powerful. Learn to want that relationship with God more than those relationships you have. It doesn't dismiss those relationships but enhances your spiritual well being. Learn to "cry after" God. Hmmmm. Have you ever "cried after" God? It's that same idea as the song inspired by Psalm 42, "As the deer panteth for the water, so my soul longeth after you. You alone are my heart's desire and I long to worship you."

To desire nothing more but to be in God's presence, wow! Look at how many things we long for and many of them mean us no good. But to be in God's presence, to move in God's will. . . yes.

This season, learn to "cry after God." Don't worry about anything else but focus on hearing from and then obeying God's will for your life. Try it. You will find peace and so much more. type to you later.
