More Love to Thee

More love to Thee, O Christ, more love to Thee! Hear Thou the prayer I make on bended knee. This is my earnest plea: more love, O Christ, to Thee; more love to Thee, more love to Thee!

This is the prayer of 2 very special people I know. Their names are Mark and Beka. Beka has a beautiful blog titled
More Love to Thee . I have really enjoyed getting to know Beka better in person, and also through her writings, which really reflect her heart. These two dear people are going through a trial- but are seeking the Lord's strength in all they do. Please read this post of Beka's. I have cried through Mark and Beka's trials, but rejoiced with them as they have experienced the comfort and joy that only God's presence can bestow. Please keep them in your prayers as they go through these hardships. They are such wonderful examples to me as a young person.

There is also something else I would like to share with you. Kaysie and Beverly have sweetly tagged me with the "blogging with a purpose" award. Thank you so much both of you! I always have trouble not tagging the person who's tagged me! Kaysie has two very beautiful blogs (
Alabaster Box and In Love with Christ) and I learn something new every time I go to visit her. Beverly also has two blogs that are an encouragement- one is especially targeted towards young ladies(The Girl Inside and The High Calling). I've chosen five bloggers who are very special.

1. Beka's blog, More Love to Thee. Girls, please read this testimony she has shared. I don't know if I ever told you Beka, but I was brought to tears by this- I was so touched by your honesty and the way God beautifully worked through both Mark and your lives.

2. Nanna's Reflections- this is another dear friend's blog I love to visit. She posts many hymns and has cute pictures and funny stories that she shares as well. Take some time to visit Nanna- you would be blessed! Also look at some of her other devotional blogs while you're there.

3. Take My Life- I know you've been tagged a couple of times now Neesie, but I love your blog, and I couldn't pass by yours! Thank you for sharing your heart, and for taking a stand for the Lord.

4. Midnight Inspiration-And yes, I know you've been tagged as well Laura. But I would like to thank you as well for your blog- you have a heart that truly desires to serve the Lord. There is no hypocrisy in you- you are so honest in all your posts. More Christians, including myself, need to be this way.

5. Byrd of the Heavens- I have really enjoyed getting to know you through your beautiful blog Rachel! Thank you for the poems, hymns, cute pictures of your cats, and encouraging thoughts that you have on your site. I just wish I had more time to sit down and really read everything- school really takes up a large chunk of our time, doesn't it?

Keep up the good work!! Thank you for encouraging me- I have been so blessed by all of you! I could only tag five, but I enjoy reading even more blogs, so I appreciate all of you who aren't on the list as well.

In Christ Alone,

Okay, I finally acknowledged this award. Had some words to say about you, girlie.
Also, I tagged you for something else. You may not want to do it and I really don't care if you don't.
