Oh, Lord. I’m so sorry!

I’m reading Crazy Love by Francis Chan, realizing how often I’ve moved God to the back seat and taken His awesomeness for granted. Why do I settle for second best when I could have the very best? When I take the time to step back and truly think about who God is, who He really is, and what is available to me through the blood of Christ, I can’t help but wonder if much of my time is just chasing my tail. And all the while He’s watching, shaking his head, knowing that if I would but come and lay it all at His feet, everything else would fall perfectly into place.

I like this quote Francis gives in the caption of the video: “Have you ever found yourself wondering whether or not the goal of life should be normalcy?”

Normalcy, complacency, apathy, selfishness…joy robbers, all of them. And yet, I don’t have to let them in.

Lord, thank you for reminding me of the true treasures of life. Thank you for reminding me of the treasure I have in you.
