Are You Thirsty?

I was reading AW Tozers "the pursuit of God" the other day. It is Exactly what I need right now. The prayer at the end of Chapter 1 summarizes so well the prayer in my heart. Perhaps it is your prayer too.
"O, God, I have tasted your goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. i am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the triune God, I want to want you; I long to be filled with longing, I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me your glory, I pray, so that I may know you 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 you up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long. In Jesus name, Amen" 
~A.W. Tozer "The Pursuit of God"

I don't know about you, but this prayer is right where I am at. I am so in love with my savior, but that love makes me thirsty for more of him.

I want to stay thirsty, how about you?

I think when we stop being thirsty for him, it is a sign we've been wandering in the "misty lowlands" too long.

I want to want more of him. 
He is so good. 
He is so Holy. 
He is so loving.

Stay thirsty with me today!

  1. Yes! This is exactly what I have been thinking ! The more I know the more time I spend, the more I want of my Jesus. You are such a kindred spirit.
