Why Do You Want Him?

I'm currently reading, Forgotten God, by Francis Chan and man is it a good book! I just wrapped up chapter four and it was a very convicting chapter. It made me think, a LOT! Chapter four, "Why do You Want Him?" has you question your true desire for more of the Holy Spirit in your life. Do you want more because you long to bring glory to God and honor Him, or do you want more for selfish reasons i.e. attention and miracles? The Apostle Paul writes in the first chapter of Galatians, "For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ!" (I added the exclamation) God desires that we seek Him wholeheartedly. He wants all of you! Every gift he's given you-- use it for His glory. Every talent, the same! It's all for Him, or nothing at all! I tend to want to make others happy or gain the approval of others. Lord help me to deny my selfishness each day and serve You above all. What a wretched sinner I am. Thank you so much for your grace Lord Jesus!

On a much simpler note, Spicer just woke up from nap saying, "shoes." I had to put a pair of shoes on her, that she picked out of course! Wonder if she had been dreaming about them... :)
