Lord that I may know you

One day I knelt beside my bed
And I began to pray
Lord I want to know you
In a very special way.

Little did I realize
The prayer that I had prayed
Little did I understand
The process it would take.

The trials then surrounded me
The battles seem to rage
I could not understand at all
How I had gotten to this stage.

I figured maybe I had sinned
And failed God in some way,
I thought I needed to repent
So I began to pray.

I poured my heart out to the Lord
But then I heard Him say,
“My child you asked to know Me
in a very special way.

I have placed you in the fire
Not that you would burn
But that you may experience Me
And many lessons learn.

For I have known rejection,
Suffering and pain
But in the midst of what
I went through
I did the victory gain.

Look not at what you are going through
For it will come to pass
But when I lead you out of it
You will experience My glory at last.

For the sufferings of this present time
Will never ever compare
To the glory that I shall reveal in you
As you remain in my love and care.”

In order to be more like Christ
We must decrease in self
We must be willing to take up our cross
And for Christ count all things but loss.

So today if you are going through
What seems like the midnight hour
Rely on the promises of God
And experience His divine power.

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.”  Philippians 3:10
