With An Overflowing Heart


“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” –James 4:8 ESV


“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” –James 4:8 ESV

Bill Gaither wrote a song titled, “The Longer I Serve Him.” The lyrics say, “The longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows; The more that I love Him more love He bestows. Each day is like Heaven, my heart overflows. The longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows.”

Think of the day you met your spouse or even a best friend. At first, you were just getting to know each and learning to trust one another. As time went on, love bloomed, deepened and grew sweeter.  Our relationship with God is much like that. As you make the decision to spend the time with Him, go to Him in prayer, praise Him and be obedient to Him, you are choosing a life that is overflowing with joy.

These actions will bring about a deeper and sweeter relationship with God in which He wants nothing more than to shower you with love and gifts.

Matthew 6:21 states, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Give your heart to God and allow Him to be your treasure.

Prayer Focus

  • Take a moment to reflect on your relationship with the Lord; is he priority in your life? If not make a commitment to Him.
  • Praise God and thank Him for His constant pursuit of your heart.
