I am a 32 year old stay at home mother of five. I strive daily to be a loving dedicated wife to my husband, but most importantly I want to know God and the things that are pleasing to Him. I have been a born again Christian for more than eight years, I attend most of the services at church. I am a faithful children church leader, but lately there seemed to be something missing. I started crying out to God. It seems as though I have a perfect life, but something was missing. God is showing me what it is and it is my hearts desire to share with you the answer that he gave me God showed me that in all the time I spent doing things for Him that I didn't have time to actually spend time with Him. The void in my heart was caused because I had forsaken my first love. I need for this emptiness to be filled. I can't live a victorious life without the presence of God Himself in my life, and so is true for anyone else. It is a shame for Christians to walk in a defeated manner, when His word tells us that we can have the victory and life yo the fullest just by seeking his face. My soul is hungry for more of God in My life. I want my life not to be in vain. I want to know that my life shine forth the glory of God and the power of his spirit. The anointing of God when a person calls on him with a truly repentant heart. When we do this God will send his Spirit to us and we can walk in The victory and fill the emptiness that we have in our hearts and lives.
Scriptures: Psalm 139:23, Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew7:7, 2 Chronicles 7:14
It is my thought that God wants us to humbly start seeking his face so that we can actually lead the lost and broken ones to him.
Questions it brought to my mind...
All I want to know is how to let the world know the hunger that God has placed in my soul, and what Needs to be done so that others can share in this hunger.
