I want to know Jesus.
I don't mean I want to know about Jesus either. I can read His words, His actions, His deeds, His history--birth, mission, death, and resurrection. I want to know Him--fully and completely. I want to be swallowed up by Him.
I want to be so intimate with Him that my every suffering is but a glory to enjoy with Him. I want to be so close that when I sneeze I hear Him say, "Bless you".
I want to be so at one with Him that I see others with His eyes and from His viewpoint and perspective. I want to have less answers for the world and more questions for my Savior. I want to spend all my time at His feet, resting in His love. I want to fall asleep with Him on my mind, and waken with Him on my mind. I want to hear His voice the first thing each morning and the last thing at night. When I look at a rose, I want to praise Him for its beauty.
I want to walk through my daily routine with Him by my side, following in His way ever-lasting... never wavering, always trusting. Never balking. Always hoping and waiting expectantly to hear His voice behind my right ear.
I want to drink of His living water, and feed on His bread of Life. His peace is my peace, His comfort my comfort. His love is my love, His goodness my goodness. His righteousness is my righteousness, His hope is my hope.
Don't you want what I want, too? selahV
