Intimacy with Jesus

Let me share with you what intimacy with Jesus means to me. It's the place where I find rest, love, and complete peace. I enter my bedroom, turn out the lights and I lay down on the couch. I'm completely focused on Him. I'm here for a purpose and that's to seek Him, hear His heart, draw a little closer and get lost in His presence. 

I'd love to tell you of my eloquent praises that I offer Him...but tonight, in this moment...I'm overwhelmed and tears fill my eyes, I look to Him, and I just shake my head. I'm completely undone...I have experienced His presence for years, yet it still is incomprehensible to me. His love for me is too much... it's just too much! 

I become repentant, my righteousness as filthy rags compared to His holiness but what He shares with me is not words of judgment but complete and utter love! His glory so bright I must look away for a moment, catch my breath, then look again intently into His eyes. The only way I can describe it is, too much! Human love is marvelous but eyes close again as waves of His glory and love wash over me...all I can do is breathe and rest in His arms.'s that kind of night. I'm not writing a devotion tonight, just enjoying my time with Jesus and trying to describe an indescribable moment. Why? Because He loves YOU this much but some of you have not yet gotten close enough to experience it for yourself. He's waiting...

Psalm 42:1-2,7-8 (NLT) As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him? I hear the tumult of the raging seas as your waves and surging tides sweep over me. But each day the Lord pours his unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing his songs, praying to God who gives me life. 

Psalm 63:1-8 (NLT) O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory. Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you! I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy. I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on you through the night. Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.
