I Long to be Part of You
Just like a tent will collapse if the center beam is missing, so will your life lack the quality I intend if you do not put me into the center of everything that you do my child. I love you so much and I long for you.
You sometimes get so busy that you run away from me though. Come back to me and let me be the center of every part of your life. Let me be in control of everything.
I want to be involved with the things that go on in your life. I want to be part of your social life, I want to be part of your spiritual life and part of every other natural area. I want to give you the wisdom you need to tackle every situation that you are faced with. I love you my child and I long for nothing more than your heart.
Come back to me and let me touch you. Do not be afraid to touch me and to give me everything. You are my beloved and I am jealous of you. You are my precious child.
I have bought you at a high price and I will not let you go so easily. I am right here waiting for you to just jump and trust in me, says the Lord.

"That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me." PHILIPPIANS 3:10-12
Many years after having first put on the Lord Jesus, Paul declares that he is still trying to apprehend the One Who has already apprehended him. The height, width, breadth, length, and depth of this New Man, this Heavenly Man, is quite beyond what we can measure apart from Spirit-revelation. We are more familiar with and have more confidence in the old man than we do in the New Man. By the grace of God, this has to change. When we truly see the New Man we transcend the old man. And this, in a nutshell, is how God accomplishes the work of decreasing us and increasing Christ.
