There is a stirring in my heart this morning that goes so deep it defies description. The only way I can define it is in the term "deep calleth unto deep." I have been here before... many times! It is an overpowering desire to go deeper... to know and love Him more!
The only thing I know to do is pray a prayer I have prayed so many times in the last few years... "Take me deeper, Lord, because I don't know how to get there from here!" It's that "hunger and thirst" that He promises us in the Word that He WILL FILL! I can't... I don't know how to.
I know there is so much more of Him to know... and I want to go there. It's not about blessings... it's about Him! Knowing Him to the fullest extent that He will reveal Himself to me!
A.W. Tozer said: "No one knows how far you can go in God, because no one has come to the end of Him!" I read that so many years ago and it always has stirred my heart with a desire that I believe God has placed so deep within me.
It's not ambition to become anything... except all that I can be in a relationship with Him. Nothing is more important to me than knowing Him!
Take me deeper, Lord, wherever deeper is, whatever it requires of me, and regardless of the cost.

I have never changed my mind or my answer! Yes, Lord! Take me there because I know wherever 'there' is... You will be with me! Let's do it!
