intimacy with God

It is common to hear that God has no favorites, that He is not a respecter of persons. That is true; however, He does have intimates! The good news is that anyone, anywhere, anytime can be intimate with Jehovah, the Lord God!

God longs to hold us close. Jesus expressed this in his analogy of the hen and chickens (Matt. 23:37), “how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings….”

Hear the voice of God as he appeals to His children to draw closer!

Draw close enough to hear the beat of His heart,

to feel the heat of his love,

to smell the aroma of his presence 

to touch the breast that breathes life anew.

to hear him say, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Accept his offer; rest under his wings today.

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Someone once pointed out to me that the image of the mother bird stretching her wings to shelter her chicks takes the shape of Christ on the cross. There we see the great love in which our Lord lays down his life for his friends. J.

    My heart always cries when I read that passage in Matthew and think of how Jesus yearns to have an intimate relationship with us and we cut it off.
