To all who thirst

Posted by appolus on December 22, 2011

Do you thirst after God? Wait upon the Lord brothers and sisters and He will revive you. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him…………….Brother Frank

TO ALL WHO THIRST

As the deer panteth for the waterbrooks
So my soul longeth after thee
Oh my Father in Heaven
Can you hear my desperate plea?

My soul cries out to you
In a dry and thirsty land
Revive me oh Lord, quench my raging thirst
Reach down from heaven and take my feeble hand

There is a famine in my soul
And it hungers after heavens food
There’s a raging thirst in my spirit
If only I could quench this thirst I would

I have tasted this food and drank from the well
Now nothing else will do
I am ruined for all of this life
Now all I want is all of you

Oh listen to my plea
Oh Christ the risen King
I need to hear your Spirit speak
I need to hear the angels sing

For I have wandered in this desert
And it has brought me too my knees
And every footprint in the desert sand
Is marked by anguished plea’s

Forget me not Oh Lord my God
For I remember thee
Those moments that we spent alone
In your Holy Sanctuary

And I was robbed of all my words
In that place before your throne
I knelt and wept, and cried with joy
I knew I’d never be alone

And now your Spirit comes to me
And a heavenly angel sings
A small still voice it says to me
” I will bear you on eagle’s wings”

Arise my my child and thirst no more
For I have heard your plea
Reach out and grasp my outstretched hand
It’s time to come away with me

    Dear Brother:
    Not knowing you personally I can at least tell we are brothers by the family resemblance…I have been called to declare the simple truth of Christ as you are. To declare the “full message of this new life” as in Acts the angel ordered the apostles to do. We are surrounded by religious Christianity, which is no gospel at all. We are in the midst of ravenous wolves who masquerade as sheep. It is time for those who see Christ in all His glory, and in His simple, direct, non-religious Way that is Truth, and leads to Life, to stand up together and fearlessly speak out. I am doing that in my blog, which is called The Narrow Gate. You are welcome, as are all others who want meat and not baby food, and strong spiritual food and not the baby bottle. It is Christ alone who will do this in us, and as He said, “Apart from Me you can do nothing.” Blessings today on you and yours as you seek Him.

      Hey Gary, no particular hard times, just a poem from my experiences. Super tough year, but always in the context of our walk, light and momentary. The narrow path is the pasth that we are called to and so there will always be a saint crying out to God, thanking God for moments in His presence, and walking through seasons………..God bless you and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers…………………..brother Frank
