A Deeper Walk

Draw us ever closer
to Your presence
to Your Glory.  
 Take us so much deeper
past the altar
to Your Glory.

I was listening to these lyrics during my quiet time this morning and I realized my soul was crying out, "Yes!  I want so much more!".  My spirit wanted to get lost in God, but every time I would start to fully surrender, my flesh would pop up.  I would start thinking about something other than God, and I would move away from His presence.  It was a battle.  

This made me realize that I have been holding back with God.  When is the last time I totally got lost in worship?  There was a time recently when I couldn't even sing a worship song without crying.  As soon as the music would start playing, I would start crying.  I couldn't help but just stand in awe of God.  I would get lost in His presence.  

I want that again.  My soul wants that.  But my flesh is fighting.  

Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation.
For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!"
Matthew 26:41

I looked up the word "willing" in the Greek.  It means predisposed; ready.  My spirit is predisposed to worship God; always ready to worship.  I believe my soul is even crying out to worship.  But my flesh holds back.  

I don't want to hold back any longer.  I am safe with God.  I don't have to put up walls to protect myself from Him.  I can give Him everything and He won't be shocked or run away.  He already knows everything about me and He loves me!  I want to go deeper with Him.  I want to get lost in His presence.  I hope this is your prayer today too.

Spirit fall down on us
as we come here to Your Glory
Cover us with mercy
children longing for Your Glory

My soul longs for You
longs with every step
longs with every breath

My soul burns for You
burns with Your desire
burns with Holy fire


  1. "The spirit is willing but the body is weak". This has been going through my head for 2 weeks. I want so so so much more of God I want to go deeper, I too am tired of holding back from God. Thank you for this great post.

  2. Thanks for a great post. I have this trouble, when having my quiet time with the Lord. My flesh is weak and Satan uses this to keep my mind from talking to the Lord. What a great post! Thanks and blessings to you.

  3. We are designed to be close to Him and yet there is a pull to resist this closeness. I'm with you, my desire is to go deeper

  4. This has been me lately. I want to go deeper with God. I want to be more passionate. But my flesh is so weak. I see things that need done, my mind wanders, I get tired. I have been asking God, just make me desire You in a way I never have.

  5. Truly a beautiful post. I have been working on surrender lately, I want to surrender really I do, I am making tiny baby steps towards that, but my flesh gets in the way, it wants to give in to the fear and worry. Absolutely lovely words you spoke today.


  6. Lost in His presence is the perfect place to be!
