On Pursuit of Intimacy

January 22, 2009

Yesterday I posted about how I have been feeling distant from God.  So now I am on a quest!  A quest to renew and rebuild my intimacy with God.  This morning I started to search for passages from the Bible that talk about a passionate intimacy with God.

Psalm 63 is a perfect example:

1 O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.

2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.

3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.

4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.

5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.

7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.

8 My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.

What an awesome place to be: where nothing satisfies except for God.

That is where I want to be.
