I wish you could see the amount of things that are swirling around in my head at any time; it's scary even to me!

Entering in to the one word challenge, I did not choose the word MORE half-heartedly or randomly.
There's an old saying that goes - "Talking to God is better than talking to yourself", so I was doing just that - talking to God while laying down in bed with all my thoughts swirling. We were having a conversation that went something like this:
Me: so much stuff is happening, sometimes I'm not sure what you want from me. Where are you leading me?
God: I want MORE of you; I will direct your paths; I will show you what you should be doing.
Me: MORE (smiling)...Yes that seems so right.  If I acknowledge you in everything, you will direct my paths.
God: Yes, trust me MORE; read my word MORE; pray MORE; pray as a family together MORE; pray as husband and wife MORE.
Me: I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I'm committing it to you. We're on this journey together.

When I woke up I posted my one word post and the following day during my quiet time I read Psalms 19: 7-11. (BTW, the first time I heard these verses was in a song; its such an old song I couldn't find it on youtube).

 7The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

MORE to be desired are they than gold......that would be Law of the Lord, his testimony, his statutes, commandments, fear and judgement - are priceless and have greater value than anything we can think of; and when we keep his commandments there is great reward to us and those around us.

It was such a confirmation and was as if the Lord was speaking directly to me and answering my question from the previous night.

Have you ever had conversations with God? What has He revealed to you? Do you typically receive confirmation?

    I want more too, when it comes to HIM.
