Sometimes we have to organize our thoughts in order to discover our priorities. Here evangelist Jeff Chacon shares his thoughts to set his heart daily!
“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
I don’t want religion –
I want relationship.
I don’t want to just believe in God –
I want to be in love with God.
I want to wake up each morning and be delighted with the thought of God.
I want to quickly get to my favorite prayer spot, anticipating something special and new each morning.
I want to dig into my Bible like a treasure hunter looking for fine pearls.
I want to pray like David – passionate about everything, wrestling with my heart, and constantly trying to claw my way into the next dimension.
I don’t want to go through life alone.
I want to go through life with Him.
I don’t want to waste my time on earth.
I want to make every moment count.
I don’t want to be drawn to the pleasures of this world.
I want to be allured by the lover of my soul.
I don’t want to worry –
I want to pray.
I don’t want to fear –
I want to trust.
I don’t want to hope – I want to know.
I don’t want to live for myself –
I want to live for others.
I don’t want to seek diversion –
I want to seek conversions.
I don’t want to be temporarily wealthy – I want to be eternally rich.
I don’t want to be like the world –
I want to be like my Lord.
I don’t want to fit in – I want to stand out.
I don’t want to make myself comfortable – I want to make myself useful.
I don’t want religion… I want relationship.
I don’t want to just believe in God… I want to be in love with God.
