In the wee hours of the night, my heart longs for Thee.

9:30pm rolled around here in Slovenia and we tucked ourselves in for the night. 
I went straight to sleep then woke up ready for the day. 
At 11:30pm. 
Two hours later. 
So, here I am. It's 12:30am now. 
I'm not sure if my body will be very happy with me tomorrow (or should I say today), but one thing I know is that in these moments, my soul is satisfied. In the dark, stillness I am able to sit here and meet with the Lord and it. is. good. Because lately I feel like I've been going through the motions with minimal connection to God. In His Word but not really going there with my heart. So, I'm trusting that me being up and at 'em was on purpose. I know God longs for my heart and my heart so desperately longs for Him. 

Give me a deeper trust, 
that I may lose myself to find myself in thee,
the ground of my rest, 
the spring of my being.
Give me a deeper knowledge of thyself,
as Savior, Master, Lord, and King. 

This is my main prayer this week as we spend time in Slovenia. That I would know Him with every fiber of my being. That I may lose myself to find myself in Him. And that people would come to know Him like this as well. That their hearts would be open to the love like I have experienced through knowing Jesus. He's here no matter where we are at. No matter how distant. No matter how close. No matter how in between.
Lord, make my heart come to life like this.
