A Passion For Thee



Set my heart, O dear Father,
On Thee, and Thee only,
Give me a thirst for Thy presence divine.
Lord, keep my focus on loving Thee wholly,
Purge me from earth;
Turn my heart after Thine.




A passion for Thee; 
O Lord, set a fire in my soul,
and a thirst for my God.
Hear Thou my prayer,
Lord, Thy power impart.
Not just to serve,
but to love Thee with all of my heart.




Father fill with Thy Spirit,
and fit me for service,
Let love for Christ every motive inspire,
Teach me to follow in selfless submission,
Be Thou my joy 
and my soul's one desire.




A passion for Thee; 
O Lord, set a fire in my soul,
and a thirst for my God.
Hear Thou my prayer,
Lord, Thy power impart.
Not just to serve,
but to love Thee with all of my heart.
- Joe Zichterman -




Jesus said unto him, 
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, 
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
- Matthew 22:37 -


And shall I use these ransomed powers of mine
For things that only minister to me?
Lord, take me tongue, my hands, my heart, my all,
And let me live and love for Thee!

Blessings and love to you, sweet friends,
on this beautiful Lord's Day.

These are my favorite flowers, beautifully captured.... I pray these words for our country, that we as a whole will follow God, give our whole lives to his ways and let him lead us in all we do, and I know that starts with me.
Have a most wonderful week :)

This is an unusual color of rose, yet so beautiful. Oh, how I miss my roses, Stephanie, and I must go to the rose garden soon in my town. I'm settling in, and I want to thank you for your comforting words. Just knowing my blog friends are right there with me means so much. That last picture is stunning. :)

Have a blessed week, my dear.

love, ~Sheri
