Closely monitoring my heart that has been vital for my spiritual ardency and revival, for so easily evanescent "idols" creep in and cloud my spiritual desire and love for God. How prone to wander is this human heart! Refocusing on that most vital party of my day--sitting at the feet of my Master in the Word--helps me to keep an eternal focus on what truly matters in the short breath of life.
I must frequently ask the Lord to "awaken" my heart with zeal for Him and to give me more grace to love Him more, echoing Psalm 119:88, "quicken me after Thy loving kindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth."
This is an excerpt of the timely book that I have been reading through this past week called One Thing I Desire: To Know Christ More by Sarah L. Bryant of The King's Blooming Rose Ministries.
This book has been a blessing to me in so many ways as I turned and found page after page of timeless and substantial truths that reminded me of the abounding grace and mercy that in the person, character, and overflowing love of Christ.
I am not one who enjoys much fluff in my reading and was delighted to find that this book proved to be powerful as the Word of God saturated it's chapters, focusing the reader's heart to look inward in humble self examination and ultimately pointing upward in encouraging exhortation to guide us towards our merciful and loving Savior.
Sarah has a deep desire to know the Lord and her hunger for Him shines through as she reaches our hearts through its pages.
One Thing I Desire is is now on sale for $10 (reg.$11)! You can find it HERE.
