Ever see a child make a drawing of their relationship with Christ. Jesus is not a distant friend sitting in a cloud far away. Jesus is not the far, far, far way person that returns very soon. When a child draws Jesus, Then Jesus is te close by friend. Somebody who is a better friend then their own brothers or sisters.

He is a best friend indeed. Somebody who makes the cloudy day into sunshine. Someone who makes all the bulling clasmates into loving friends. Children believe in the all powerful, all loving, all faithful, ever trusting, always healing power of Christ.

But the we get old... and the older we get, the father away God seems to be in our drawings. When older people make pictures... Christ suddenly disappears from our pen of inspiration. We draw friends... but not Jesus. We draw beauty and nature... but not the Creator. We draw heaven.. but we only see clouds and sunshine.. .but not the Son.

But then...on a sudden moment... we see the pencil of inspiration.. we see the loving hand of God throughout scriptures. We see His pen write down words like.. "I created heaven and earth and behold it is good" We see words penned down in Exodus and see the character of our Lord throughout the 10 commandments. We see love beyond belief when we read that God wants to draws us closer to Him, by sending is only begotten son. And even closer that He gave the life of His son.. so that we always might be closer to Him.

When i read the bible my only desire is.. Lord take my pencil.. Take it away from me. I no longer want to draw a picture without you. I want you to draw.. draw me closer to Your heart, Oh Lord.

My pencil forgets about you.. My drawings are faulty and flaw.. But Your words, Your song and Your Will.. is lovely, perfect beyond my own perception. I am looking form.. I am seeking Lord... Life in Your Word.

Lord just draw me close to You, that is my desire

Psalm 63 (KJV)
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;

To see thy power and thy glory,
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live:
I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Draw me closer

I don’t really own a thing
But I know this
I am lost without You
I don’t know what te future brings
But I know this
I couldn’t make it.

Without YOU
I am yearning
Lord, need you
Please hear me

And Lord with all my heart
I lift my hands to You

Just to be close to You
Is my desire
Just to be closer to You, Oh Lord
That is my desire

I’ve I had a button and erase
All my mistakes
I would be ok
Thinking about the choices that I make
I might as well face it
It is only me to blame

And I am Crying and asking
Over and over
How did I get here
Desperately I am seeking You oh Lord

Just to be close to You
Is my desire
Wrap Your loving arms around me
When I reach for help
Reach out me me Oh Lord
Just to be closer to You, Oh Lord
That is my desire

Wipe these tears from my eye
In your presence oh Lord
Is there somebody who would pray with me

“Closer, Closer, All I what is You
Draw me close to You
Somebody say:
It’s called out her
I am waiting for your grace
This world is so dark
And the storms of life are raising
All I want, Oh Lord is to be close to You
That is my desire”
