To linger in his presence

Yesterday was a day that my heart felt full. It wasn't an amazing day of opportunity.  Nor was it that work was exceptionally great.  It was a day in which I felt God speaking to me.

 A day when that still small voice was there, ministering to my soul all day.  His voice called me to come, to sit with him and listen.  A day where in amongst the busyness of work, I was still. Stillness is something that I don't do very well so it was delightful to feel quietness in my soul even though life whizzed around me, the phone kept ringing and the demands of work.

For the past few days, that still small voice has been calling.  Growing stronger and louder every day and yesterday it was louder still.  My heart felt as though it was beating in rhythm with his.  It was beating to a tune that resonated deeply in my soul.  A tune that enveloped me.  A connection, a joy, a desire.  I wanted the world to stop. Not because it was madness or too busy but so I could linger in his presence undistracted and enveloped in all the grace, mercy and love that he showers on me.  A soaking of the spirit to a point where I was overflowing.

I loved yesterday and am longing for more today.  He is talking to me, calling me and drawing me closer and closer.  My heart is full and I want to stay longer, so I can be filled over and over again.

Psalm 16:11 "You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand."
