Too far gone!

This morning I was listening to a friends CD and one of the lyrics just got me and I had it on repeat for a while. I got a fresh touch of His love and it felt so good. The romancing the intimacy I've been longing for showed up today. Just in one little touch and my heart was ravished. So the chorus is “I'm too far gone to go back from where I came and my heart is set on you.” I couldn't imagine living any other way anymore. I was remembering where I came from, not believing but hoping that there was something out there that would satisfy me that would bring me joy. I remember searching and searching for something. I looked for love in relationships, I tried different ways of making money to see if that would satisfy my heart, nothing worked until He came around-Jesus that is! I'm so thankful that He saved my soul! I've fallen head over heals for Him, He's are all I've ever dreamed of. To love so deeply to feel so deeply. Even in the hard times it is worth it, when I can't feel Him, when the money doesn't come in, when people say stuff about what I'm doing and it all doesn't make any sense. It is still worth the one touch, the one encounter, the one word He whispers that encourages my heart.... oh how I love Him. I'm gonna press on and set my heart on Him. This song also says “I'm holding on to your promises leaning into your word” and I'm realizing it is just that easy! His promises are in His word and all we have do is lean on His word and He's gonna do the rest. Be blessed today y'all!
