There Is None Upon the Earth I Desire Beside Thee O God

As the deer pants after the water brooks, so longs my heart after You O God! The Living God. Psalms 42:1

My heart longs after You with a deep longing. Day by day my heart yearns for the living God; my soul thirsts for You O God!

Night by night I meditate upon Your Word and remember Your righteous and tender acts towards me O God.

Whom have I in heaven beside You? Whom have I on earth aside from You?

My bones cleave onto Your Word as a child cleaves unto its mother.

Your Word is more sweet to me than honey, and to keep it, though accompanied by the bearing of a cross, brings much delight to my soul.

My life, my substance, my heart, my flesh and bones belong to You O God.

I delight to think thoughts after You, for such are thoughts that translate to peace, tranquility, joy, and rest to the soul.

Saving Jesus, I am not ashamed to be termed a fool for reason of Your Sweet Name. A name that brings much calm to my soul.

Indeed, Your name is a strong tower, and whenever, and wherever I run into it I am safe.

Psalms 73

24 You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
26 My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27 For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish; You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry.
28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, That I may declare all Your works.

Okay… Let’s just be honest, whenever most people hear anything about religion, their first reaction and instinct is probably to cringe or brush off the whole matter entirely.

Why? Most likely because it is a subject that is associated with extreme cases of fanaticism, it brings about a lot of conflicts and controversies, and even offends easily.

Religion is famously known for: manipulation, stagnation, repression, ignorance, bigotry and is too often a threat to liberty. And rightly so. I do agree. With that said, I recommend you to read two of my posts as well as encourage you to do a personal, extensive, and honest research on your own regarding this matter. Why?

As intellectuals (critical thinkers), I believe we owe it to ourselves to interrogate, examine, and ask hard questions regarding matters touching on faith rather than choosing to ignore them or even worse— follow blind faith. Click here for the first post.

Who speaks the truth with regards to a genuine, sincere and true relationship with God? Is it Buddha? Muhammad? Jesus? Zoroaster? Confucius? Joseph Smith? Guru Nanak? Krishna? Among others? Find out on this second post:

Why Jesus Stands Out

My heart overflows with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalms 45:1
