Longing For More?


Posted by Picasa

As a result of my recent moody-ness, I have been pondering about my own thinking, feeling, state of mind and emotional vulnerability etc. Today I was in tears, but praise the Lord! I was reminded that I actually yearn for what I already have, and fearful of what I shouldn't be.

OK rather than being sentimental, let me analyse it.

So what do I long for?

  1. love? of course I have a yearning to love and be loved; with the desire to know I am accepted and valued. I have the greatest love of all - the love that is sacrificial and unconditional. God's great love sent Jesus to the Cross for me.
  2. hope? of course I long for security and hope that will last! Jesus is my living hope. Truly a relationship with Him brings genuine hope into my life.
  3. worth? of course I long for self worth. God thinks I worth a lot. I matter to Him and can make a difference in the world as I serve Him.
  4. forgiveness? I know well what it is to live with regret and guilt! Jesus' death opened the door to forgiveness. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive our sins.

Thank you Father God for Your great love. You are the source of life. Please strengthen me, watch over me, guide me and protect me from all harm. Help me not to fear as Your love casts out all fear. Lord I love You with all my mind, with all my soul, and with all my heart. I long to see You more clearly, to love You more dearly, and to follow You more nearly, day by day! In Jesus' name, amen!

Corry, I really don't know if it's a good testimony, but I feel very encouraged of the reminder myself. It was God who whispered this into my ears ;) Thanks a lot for your blessing Corry.

God's Grace is sufficient for you and me.

and under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

Hi Kitty,
that is a powerful image you included in this post.
Did you create that yourself?

Kitty Cheng said...

Hi Kel, I also find the image very powerful. I wish I created that myself. It was from a graphic designer friend who also has the same condition as me.

God bless you, Kitty. I appreciate many things about your writing, but one of the things I appreciate most is your honesty. I will stand in agreement with your prayer in Jesus' name.

Kitty Cheng said...

Thanks for your kind words and affirmation Mark. I appreciate you a lot too. Thanks for standing in agreement with my prayer. I need lots of prayer requests for my weeknesses honestly.
