How I crave for God to be all I want.
I crave and yearn for to Him to be all I want, my only true desire.
To be my treasure. The treasure I have found in a field, hide, and sell all of my belongings in order to purchase the field.
To be my pearl.
Would I be willing to risk everything? Would I be willing to lay aside all my earthly desires and sinful wishes for Him?
Would I be okay with going to Heaven if it were a perfect place with all my friends and family with no more pain or suffering…but, if God wasn’t there?
Is God really all I want?
Oh, How frustrated I become with my flesh and my pride!
I fall on my knees and declare that Jesus, you are the only thing I want!
Help me. Help me live in this truth. Help this move from my head to my heart.
I want to crave you. I want you to be my obsession. I want to live in exceeding joy over your glory.
Rid me of myself. I can’t bear myself. I feel trapped inside this sinful straightjacket of flesh. Sometimes it feels so hard to see beyond my pride and selfishness and bitterness and anger and unkindness.
Such a flawless redeemer.
May you be all I crave.
