that your love may abound more …


More …

Joining in with the FMF group (on Monday), a weekly writing prompt exercise where the writer (me and you), settle in and write freely with NO rules. Just write, no corrections, no worry, no comparing our talents to the other writers. Just writing for writing’s sake. Check it our HERE.

“that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight,” Philippians 9:9-10

Have you found that we often feel and actually … “there has to be more …”? Satisfaction is often our focus. We desire more. We need more. Look at any area of your life and I’ll bet that you can find at least one “more” question there. Sad.

I have experienced a tremendous amount of loss in the last two years and when I briefly raise my head out of the grief I seek only one thing more … God’s face. I must. After losing so much I’ve lost one’s focus changes drastically, and I am blessed with a faith so strong it conquered death.

STOP

There was nothing more that could have kept me breathing. Things and people no longer what I seek. When I seek more and more of God. When I purposefully seek to deepen my relationship with God more I am able to trust His plan for my part and purpose in this life.

Though my blessings and His promises will be more in heaven. I have much more to do here.

Though the prompt this week was MORE … when we seek more we must first fix our focus ….

So I seek … More of Him.

“… One final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8

If you knew how focused God is on you … you’d be amazed and you’d never fear again! If you knew for certain would you focus on Him?

The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands. Psalm 138:8
