What I’m Longing For

From my journal this morning, praying for the kind of transformation I want God to bring in my life:

I long for the day when every spare moment I have is seen as an opportunity to read more of God’s Word. I long for the day when my greatest longing at any given moment is to sneak away for a few minutes to meet with God in prayer. I long for the day when I can lose all track of time as I read chapter after chapter of the Scriptures, only to realize later that hours have passed by without my realizing it.

I know this is possible – I’ve seen it happen in my life with the interent and TV. I’ve given spare moments to pulling my phone out and checking out what is new on Twitter and Facebook. I’ve lost all track of time reading blogs or watching TV, only to realize later that more time has passed than I care to admit. I know this is possible!

I want to be consumed by the things of God. If I have three minutes to spare, I want it to be given to knowing God. If I have large chunks of discretionary time, I want it to be given to knowing God. I want to live and breathe and bleed God’s Word because it’s been so much a part of me.

Holy Spirit, please come and make it so…
