Welcome - Week of April 28, 2014 True Stories Party


I Love a True Story !!
 
I hope you are enjoying these remarkable true stories. 

All of your entries are read by me by reading four or five at a sitting.  I also make short comments.  Hope you are doing likewise, especially those near you!

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. -Psalm 107:8-9

Intimacy with Jesus is the context in which the deep longing in our hearts for more of Him is progressively satisfied. People who are born again do not automatically have a sense of the nearness of God. Effective ministry produces a satisfaction that comes through helping others and being useful in God's kingdom, but it is not the same as the satisfaction that comes from encountering God in our inner man.  Jesus must become real to us as a Personal Savior.

The Holy Spirit may give spiritual gifts to believers and release His power through us, but these things do not ultimately satisfy the desire in our hearts for more of God. When our spiritual hunger is not being satisfied, we will experience frustrating spiritual boredom and restlessness.  Mike Brickle

  3. It is my first time here. Thank you for hosting. I appreciated reading your quote from MIke Bickle about intimacy with God being the context where the longing for more of God is satisfied. Thank you for the rest of the quote... it is true. MIke Bickle is one of my favorite authors. Blessings on your day, Lidia (from the Philippines)
