In the desert…

“Only one life, ’twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.”

Asking

“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you, seek, and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and the one who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” ┬áLuke 11:9-13

Heavenly Father, I ask for your Spirit now. I ask humbly and timidly. I feel as though your Spirit has left me. Although I don’t believe that to be true, it is how it feels. Like a body without blood I feel my soul is without your Spirit. Please return him to me. Don’t leave me alone. I know that you won’t, but don’t leave me.

I’m asking. I’m trying to seek you in your Word. I’m wanting to knock but I’m not sure where. Father, give me the “good gift” of the Holy Spirit or show me that I already have him.
