Oh, how I yearn to know Him more and to recognize His grace always.

Oh, how I yearn to know Him more and to recognize His grace always.

O Lord my God, how great Thou art … I mean this sincerely Lord, how great You are! I yearn for more of You. I long to dwell in Your Presence.

Regardless of our circumstances You continue to work wonders. Your grace continues to blanket the rough edges of life’s hardships, making crooked places straight and causing dry, parched areas to come alive through Your refreshing Spirit.

Thank You Lord. Thank You for Your faithfulness — on You I can depend and trust. You are indeed great. I appreciate You so much.

I pray for those who yearn for more of You. Fill their longings with revelations of Yourself. As they draw near to You, let them feel the warmth of Your embrace, the breath of life as You draw them to Yourself. Open their eyes that they might see You clearly and learn to recognize Your abiding presence. What an amazing miracle that is — the Creator of the Universe, the Lord God Almighty abiding with us. Thank You Lord.

May we never take You for granted! May we never put You on display just for others to notice, but, instead, may we treasure our relationship with You and guard it with everything we have.

Return us to our first love — You, O Lord. You are our bright and Morning Star, our Comforter, Deliverer, our Savior and Lord. Bless You Lord. Thank You for Your unconditional love that is from everlasting to everlasting.

We love You Lord.

In Jesus’ Name I pray,



Please don’t carry your burdens alone. I would be honored to pray for you.

Have you had a chance to read Faith Notes ~ Sam Evans: Cerebral Palsy, Lung Cancer, and Jesus?

I seriously love this woman named Sam Evans. I don’t know her. We have barely developed an online friendship, but I love her. She is full of spunk. Love. And faithfulness to her Lord. Her childhood was difficult enough due to cerebral palsy, but now, just in the past few weeks, she has learned that her young and precious husband has been diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer. And yet she praises God. She trusts Him. She crawls desperately into His presence and dwells there. Thank you Sam. Thank you for your authentic, raw, and messy faith. You are a blessing.
