I’m not a reader.  It takes work for me to sit down and read a book. Therefore, I’ve been on this long journey reading a book called “Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire” by Jim Cymbala. It is a very short, easy to read book, so it shouldn’t have taken me this long to read it, but it has. Today, I came home and thought “I only have about 20 pages or so left; I think I’ll finish this tonight.”  I began reading and came to this line, “The more we seek God, the more we see our need to seek Him.” WOW! I had to stop right there and just think about that. I’m still chewing on that thought as I am writing about it. Angelica would say that I’m a bottom line kind of person, and the bottom line here is that we HAVE to seek God. It is a necessity! I If we don’t seek God, we won’t see our need for Him and begin living selfishly. We will lose sight of the cross. I don’t know if that quote will hit anyone else like it hit me, but do chew on it a bit and see.

 

May I never lose sight of the cross!
