Oh How I Love the Lord!

Jesus, I love You!  You are all I need to live. I thank You for who You are.  I thank You for Your love for me. Thank You for teaching me and for hearing my prayers and for guiding me with Your Holy Spirit presence within me!  Thank You for all You do to speak to the Father on my behalf!

Thank You for being perfect love, like He is, and an example of that for me.  I don't know the words, only the feelings I have for You.  The desire I have for You in my heart overwhelms me at times and I must weep because I can't touch You in the natural.  I long for You so I can feast my eyes on Your beauty and light.

I know it is only a matter of time until I am sweetly nestled in Your arms feeling Your heartbeat!  O what ecstasy!  My heart will surely leap from my chest in utter joy and surrender!

I need You so much.  Even when I am not consciously aware, while I enjoy life's little pleasures, my heart cries out for more, for the unseen, for You to smile in my direction!  Just a glance.  Just a small acknowledgement of my existence is all my heart can ask for, and yet You have not just glanced, You gaze at me!  You don't put limits on Your grace.  You smile, You laugh, and You cry through the joys and sadness I go through in my life.  You are with me always!  You are in me!  You are my Friend, my Lover, my glorious Redeemer.  You are my Deliverer, my Savior.  You are the beat of my heart and the smile on my face.  You are my heart's desire.

I will love you until time is no more, and then I will love You still!  Through eternity I will bow before Your throne and give You honor.  I praise You.

And when every knee bows down and every tongue speaks Your name, I hope mine is the loudest!  I love You, I love You, I love You!

  1. Love your post and your writing so reminds me of a female rendition of King David and his Psalms. You can consider that a HUGE compliment!

  2. Deirdre, This is one conversation/prayer that made me feel as though the angels were speaking to remind us of the love and promise given to each of us. I could feel your being filled with sincerity as you walked with Jesus.
    Thank you for sharing your most private emotions and love.
    I love you my Sister in Christ, Your feelings were intoxicating.

  3. Thank you, Rosemary. Intoxicating is such a good word for how I feel when I surrender my very being to Him. God bless you, my Sister in Christ!

  6. Deirdre,
    I got chills reading this wonderful testament to our living God and Savior. You should make a booklet of these adorations and prayers as they would be/are so inspirational. I love reading them, reminding me that I should be be outwarding praising "Him from whom all blessings flow as well."

    Love you!

  7. Deidre, I must agree with Micki. Your postings definitely need to be published. They are so inspiring. At least you have this written record so it would not be hard at all to put it together. . .not like writing it all from scratch so to speak. Please keep the Lord's words flowing, they sooth the ripples in the stream of life!

  8. Thank you so much, Sharla, when God gives me the word to do that I will. For now though I will write what He inspires me to. I love your words, "they sooth the ripples in the stream of life!" Thank you so much, it means a great deal to me to know that I am the vessel He is using to lift people's spirits. God bless you! Love, Deirdre

  9. Your blog is so awesome and beautifully written. I can sense the love you have for God and that is such a blessing the way you express it. I think about God's love and how he loved us when we were yet sinners Christ Died for us.
    May God Bless you as you be obedient to him who called you
