Right now, my heart is failing because I do desire many things on earth more than Jesus...mostly I desire bold work with Him to be part of making all things new even now. He wants me to be satisfied by Him alone, to have no identity outside of Him, to cling for life to nothing other than Him, to desire nothing compared to communion and oneness with Him.
I want to run, go, do, fight for His Kingdom, leave it all out on the field for His glory... yet He is calling me simply to be still and know Him. Lord, would you still me? Would you quiet my wandering, restless heart and hold it close to yours? Thank you that you have not left me to grab at you, to approach you properly, to quiet myself, to say the right thing or ask in just the right way. You are not waiting on me "to get it" or to "figure it out". YOU will complete the good work that YOU have begun so I will wait and I will trust.
