Here is my huge take-away from today’s reading:
I want to participate in God’s divine nature rather than wallow in my own bad attitude and insecurities.
Too often I participate in my own nature and when I do things just don’t turn out so well. At the beginning of the year I adopted a three-word moto: I want God. Very simple. Very invasive.
Wanting God is an interruption to my nature. This moto has invaded my thought life. It has changed my music selection and television viewing. I tell you, wanting God has transforming power. I catch myself doing something against my human nature and honestly, I smile. The moment is warm, refreshing, empowering, and makes me want to want God more.
This wanting God ushers me into moments where I can participate in the divine nature that is mine as a child of God. I see God in places I know I have missed Him before. I can hear Him whisper which means I am very close to His face and His heart.
Yes. I. Want. God. And all everything that implies.
