O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need for further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, so that I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love with in me. Say to my soul, "Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long.
- A.W. Tozer, the Pursuit of God
I came across this quote yesterday and it really moved me. It's moving me away from lukewarmness. It's moving me into a fresh desire for more of His presence. It's moving me to do something different. To love more. To be bold. To serve.
Just thought I would share.
