Seeking the Holy Spirit

I thought for a change I'd share some of my 'secret place' with you. I challenged myself to get to know the Holy Spirit more intimately.
excerpt taken from my journal with the Lord:
Tuesday April 28th, 2009
I have selected a 'secret place' for time with the Lord (my old yellow porch glider that looks out to the woods). The birds are up and active, singing to the Lord. This morning the birds and I entered into His presence with a new song to the Lord.
The Holy Spirit woke me up early, as I asked Him to last night. He has such a sense of humour...I jumped out of bed at 4:50 thinking I heard the baby crying. As I stood outside her door, I realized it had been the Lord's way of 'getting me up.'
I grabbed a coffee, my bible, my dream notebook, my journal, pen and fur blanket and got myself cosy on the old metal glider.
I entered into His Presence with singing; a new song of love for Him.
I asked Him for a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit, that I would even know His laughter, His moods, His voice clearer than ever before. I asked Him for Wisdom and Revelation and that He would enlighten the eyes of my heart (new understanding).
He led me to Proverbs 14 and then to the book of Ephesians.
As I sat reading and worshipping Him, tears flowed from my eyes. His Presence was so real and my heart swelled with love for Him. Oh, how good it is to come into His Presence. Oh, Lord deepen our friendship and stir my passion for you.
Holy Spirit teach me Your ways.

Thanks for sharing, Kimmie! It makes my heart sing, too!

I often pray the same..."Lord, if you want me up early, wake me up!"...and He has always faithfully done so :-)
