Falling to the ground?

Why is it sometimes that I can search and seek God and I seems like my prayers and searching fall to the ground? God, I know you are alive and well. I see you working all around me. Help me to see You and not what I want to see. Help me to see Your answers, not the answers I want to see. I want you more than I want myself. I have tasted Your love and will continue to search for You with all my heart, soul, and mind. I love you Lord.

Can I be doing all the talking?

Can I sit long enough to be quiet and listen to God? Life just seems overwhelming right now and I think that I need to do all I can to make everything work out just right. My heart wants to hear God, but my head gets in the way. Yet, I need to be active with the responsibilities that God has already given me.
Father, I need wisdom to know what to do and what not to do. I need to find balance in my life. Give me the courage to act when You want me to act and give me patience to wait when you want me to wait. Slow my mind down, so I can just sit and not think about anything and just listen to You. I know I need to listen to You God. How can I have and intimate relationship with You if I am doing all the talking? Help me to just be still and know that You are God.

Pockets of Unforgiveness

I am not going to settle for brief encounter instead of intimate dialogue. I am not going to be content with a salvation contract instead of enjoying communion. God, I am giving You all the parts of my heart. I am pursuing Union.
Father, show me how to do all of this. I am so confused, scared, and hurt. Show me all the hidden pockets of unforgiveness that are blocking the flow of Love. Help me to let go of bitterness, so that Your love can flow freely into my heart.

Could God be delighted in me?

Show me Lord, how You, the Creator of the universe loves me with a reckless and boundless love, likes to hear the sound of my voice and hangs on my every word. Could it be that You want to spend time with me and actually look forward to me giving You my attention? Could it be true that no matter what I do or think, You won't get angry with me? Was that you whispering "I understand" and "It only makes me love you more", when I confessed my sins? Could you actually be giddy with delight whenever I whisper back, "I love You"?
Father, show me how to pursue You with the same reckless abandon with which I chased my spouse.

Can I begin to grasp God's Love?

I love you Lord. Show me how much You love me, how deep and sure your love is. Show me Your love, that is stronger than any parent's and more romantic than any lover's. May this image not even fully contain the Love the I would feel from You God.

Falling In Love With God

What is it like to fall in Love with God? Can I really have a personal relationship and not just a commitment to God? I have live a life of rules and duties. I am searching to live the experience of a love relationship with Jesus Christ. Where do I start?
