Does God love man?
If you had it all, would you share freely?
What would I give to see God for who he is. All of his glory in such a way that it would drive me to my knees like Isaiah in fear and trembling. To really grasp my weakness and unimportance in the presence of God.
I wonder if the Amish are on to something? Are they right to send the young men out into the world. By forcing them to make their beliefs system their own, nobody can then take it away from them. What they claim to believe isn’t just because of what their parents, friends, or family believe, but they are forced to make a choice. To either accept or reject the beliefs that they have been raised with.
Or is someone else’s belief enough?
Until it is your own it will not fit.
Unlike Jerry McGuire the only thing that completes me is God.
“We should not pray that God is on our side, but rather that we are on His.” Abraham Lincoln
neither for or against
Are we thinking God is on our side and forgetting that we need to be on his? Until we get on his side we are not doing it for his glory, but for ours.
I am wondering about having a longing for God. I want to want nothing more than God. And I know that there truly is nothing more. I intellectually want and desire nothing more than all of God. Mentally I desire to settle for nothing less. Physically I go to my knees, face to the ground and ask for the fullness of God.
Isn’t there more?
Does Walt Disney have it all wrong?
Seeing the women around us for who they really are.
If I would just grab a hold of God with both hands I couldn’t hold onto all the other junk, the treasures of this world that keep me away from God. So many things that I let come between God and myself. He doesn’t put them there, I do.
