More of You…

Good morning, Family:

Have you ever been hungry? Have you ever been thirty. When you are hungry and thirsty you go where food and water is available.

Every day, our desire for God should be like a person who is hungry and thirsty. You don’t want anything but what will satisfy you.

Matthew 5:3-10 

The Message (MSG)

“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

“You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

“You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

“You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

“You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

10 “You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom.

Go with God, family. Find out what the heart of God desires for your life. Spend time, intimate, precious time, in His presence. Become familiar with the fragrance of God. His smell should rub off on you. So much so, that others can tell you have been in His presence.

Rev. Marcia Davis
