The one thing I ask of the Lord–the thing I seek most–is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections. Psalm 27:4
Wow. What a desire. To live in the presence of God. To have such a love for Him that we are constantly running after Him.
I cannot tell you how much I want to live my life this way. Where daily devotions and spending time with my Father are not a struggle. Where I don’t say or feel exhaustively, “I have to go read.” “I have to go pray.” But, I run – I mean really run to Him. Because, I am in love with this massive, incomprehensible, extraordinary Creator.
What’s even more astounding is that this massive, incomprehensible, extraordinary Creator wants to spend time with me. When, I am nothing. And, He is everything.
I am reading Francis Chan’s Crazy Love right now. It is chalked full of God’s Word – how truly great He is – and what it really means to live a surrendered life. Whenever I can get my brain to wrap around what God is doing in me through this book, I will definitely share more.
I want to seek Him more than anything else.
What are you seeking most right now?

I love that early morning , late night time sitting on the couch with Him., this morning was one of those times… sometimes His presence feels so Holy that I can only be on my knees, but today was the cuddled up talking to him about my kids hearing His heart, and me trying to get on His page regarding John. Knowing that He does no harm in my life, that even pain brings me to a deeper knowledge of Him, makes all the difference. I read 1John the other day (your dad mentioned it sun) and was most impressed with if we sin we are in darkness and there is no light in us… my struggle right now is so letting that light shine in that it shines out so there will be no darkness. it isn’t about trying to get out of the dark by not sinning so much as walking in the light that doesn’t give way to darkness/disbelief. walking in Him. my words are not good enough to ‘splain what i feel –
