Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind.
// mark 12:30 //
Oh Lord, let it not so be for us.
A question I've been meditating on in light of these thoughts, would be: "Is my sole desire in life to love God and glorify Him in everything I do?"
Father, let our desire be to follow You not for the praise of men, but to truly live a radical, sold out life for the King of kings in the light of eternity. Be our obsession, God. Our One and Only aim. May our eyes be filled with Your glory and grace so that the things of this world grow very dim. Take away pride and fleshly desires from our hearts that keep us from loving You completely. Replace it with a burning passion to love You above everything else this world has to offer.
Let us strive to follow You with every ounce of strength, and to understand the full meaning of this beautiful verse.
More of You, Jesus, and less of me.
You alone are worthy of all our praise...to You be the glory, Father!
