The More We Have Of God...



"The more we have of God, the more of Him we need!"
 This was a line in the first e-mail I opened this morning 
from someone geographically far, far away but prayerfully near!
The other day I posted a poem Heart’s Content naming things that make the heart content…
Hopefully the fullness of all small contentment does not dull but stirs hunger for More of The Giver...

May this song bless and challenge each of us!

Imagine if our want and thought
Would ever kindly lead
To where the more we have of God
The more and more we need

Imagine if, when life is kind
We lingered long with He
Who we call on when faith is blind
And filled with agony

Imagine if our love for More
Would satisfy our greed
Yet rouse a howling hunger for
The more and more we need

Imagine if when Want is filled
It drilled a gaping hole
That craves the love of God until
The body is the soul

Ps. 107:8-9
 Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, 
And for His wonders to the sons of men! 

 Psalm 34:10
The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; 
But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.

Luke 1:53
He has filled the hungry with good things, but has sent the rich away empty.

 Matthew 5:6
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

 Matt 19:16-22
 And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?”  And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.”  He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  
 The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?”   
Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, 
and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.”  
 When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
