over and over

Sometimes I can listen to the same song over and over again. One time I drove 45 minutes and just kept hitting the down arrow and listened to the same song over and over and over again... I am God by Kirk Franklin. Yesterday, I did the same thing, for 20 minutes. Phyllis hates it when I do that, so I don't do it when she's around.

Food... same thing. I can eat the same thing over and over again until I am sick of it. I ate Arabic (Middle Eastern for you politically correct people) everyday for a week until the VP said "please stop you smell like a walking garlic clove). I probably did.... mmmm.... chicken schwarma....

Lately though, I haven't been able to get close enough to God. I read, I listen, I worship, I pray, studying, and I love what I am reading, I just can't get enough. Scripture verses everywhere, bible in my purse, at the gym, I've been goggling different things. It's something that I am glad I am hungry for. His love is constantly surrounding me, and I am learning new ways to look at the same verses I've read over and over. Verse that I didn't know why I received them until I really meditated on them.

Do you think you can feel so close to God, yet not close enough?

John 1:1 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.

I like you can listen to the same song over and over! Right now I am into Michael English, have bought 6 of his CD"s and of course
he's all I've listened to for months! When I was a teenager I was in my room playing the same 45 record...
and my Mama yells down the hall "if I hear that record one more time I'm coming in there and breaking it!" Go figure!
