I can hardly wait to spend my morning time with my Lord. I get my cup of coffee, by bible and notepad ready to get into the presence of God. When my routine is interrupted and I am unable a few days to do as accustomed I find I am almost desperate to get back on track.
Desperate for Your Touch
My soul is desperate for Your touch,
It seems I can never get enough.
I fill up to overflow
With the nourishment of my soul,
But still I have a great desire within.
With all I am I yearn for more of Him.
When my thoughts stray to mundane things,
I am jealous of the time spent away from my King.
When worry and the troubling sounds of life,
Pull my attention away from Jesus Christ;
Again I am desperate to get back on track,
And from the world’s clamor I turn my back.
My heart reaches up frantic for Him,
Only to remember He also dwells deep within.
I settle in to my secret place,
Ready to receive His loving embrace.
Here I am Lord use me today.
Be with me in my attitudes in all I do and say.
And when I get tired and weary from my toil,
And in my desperation I again seek Your anointing oil,
Allow me to return in repentance like the prodigal son.
I know by faith my Heavenly Father toward me runs.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
I stretch forth my hands unto thee:
my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land.
