There is a stirring within my heart to go deeper.
Last Monday morning in the dark, cold, rain a group of women gathered at Starbucks to do this very thing. Not content with mediocrity nor complacency, we gathered to go deeper.
Give us this day our daily bread…
May YOU God be my daily bread.
May I not put a bite of food into my mouth until my heart bows in submission to your authority for this very day.
May my hands not type a single text or email until they be lifted to the King in surrender for the upcoming hours.
May I not fill my cup until it is first filled by You.
How do we do this? What does this look like? For each one it will be as unique as we are. But the common thread is that we PURSUE the living God in the midst of our days.
For some that means rising while it is dark and stopping to listen. To bow. To beckon.
Ps. 119:147 “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope is your word.”
For many (including myself) who wake early to the sound of scurrying feet and hungry tummies, it is stealing some quiet moments with children by my side (Children’s Bible in their hands, my own in my hand) while we seek God together.
Other days it means rushing to my “quiet place” on the couch,
journal, pen & Bible in hand as soon as children lay down for afternoon naps.
Whatever it looks like for you, may you beckon on further still.
Over the days & weeks ahead I will share ways I enjoy diving deeper. Variety is key. Who wants chicken everyday for lunch & dinner? We have a buffet of God’s glory to revel in, to be amazed by. He has given us many ways to enjoy & SAVOR Himself.
May we not fill up on the nibblings of this world,
But instead feast at the banquet table of our God.
We have been created to know and savor Him. Pull up your chair today with eager expectation… and find your fill in Him.
