Hunger for His Presence!

3 Words in 1


Reaping the Harvest is Easy!

It’s the growing of the fruit that takes time, attention and effort.

Your harvests will only be as bountiful, and your fruit only as sweet, as the time you allowed in being pruned and prepared to produce an abundance of good fruit.

Hunger for His Presence

Only those who seek the deeper Life will find it.

Only those who long for the treasures buried in the Father’s heart will discover and share them.

Only those who long for the depths of the Spirit, will be led on the journey of their discovery.

Deep calls to deep, and beckons those with a longing for the depths of God within, to “come and drink”.

Only the thirsty are led to the sweet Water Brooks of the River of God, to buy without price and to feast on the Water becoming a fountain within their innermost being, until completely overwhelmed by the Glorious intoxicating Presence of drinking deeply from the River of His Love!

‎Seek Him and ye shall find!

Herein is a Beautiful Thing to Find!


Becoming the Anointed of the LORD!


“… Herein is a beautiful thing to find…..

The disciples each paid a price to follow Jesus.  What they saw caused them to hunger for more and they forsook what they had to lay hold of what they desired to obtain, which they had measured to be worth infinitely more than what they possessed and would forsake.

Unless this inner revelation of Christ is not obtained from the Spirit and unless the scales are not removed from the eyes of the beholder to gaze upon the wealth of riches than can never be obtained at any price, and which are valuable beyond measure, it becomes impossible to let go of what we have, in order to obtain that we can only possess in letting go of what we hold.

The rich man wanted to add the value of the prize to his treasure instead.  His hands were already full with what he held.

When he found out the price to obtain the prize was to release from his hand what he held as treasure in his life, he was saddened in his heart.  How could he ever leave or forsake what seemed immeasurably more valuable to him, than what he perceived he could obtain for the price of letting it go?

He saw the price of following Christ, but was veiled in his heart from seeing the Prize he could obtain in forsaking what he had, to take hold of what he could obtain.

We can never go after the Kingdom unless we are prepared to follow Christ and we can never follow Him, unless we are willing to forsake what is keeping us back from going where He calls and leads us to follow.”

Are you living “in His Name” –  Or in His Presence? …”
