It crept up on me. I don’t know when it started. The last month? The last six months? Last year?! I didn’t realise as I was slowly smothered by cares and concerns, distracted by desires and discouragements; God became second place in my heart. Just one degree off, little by little. And He no longer is my centre of adoration and life in my life. I still love Him. I’m still on the journey with Him. What I wasn’t careful with—I’ve allowed good intentions and desires to take the place where God is supposed to. Robbing my unadulterated joy and contentment when—God is enough.
I want Him back to take first place in my heart.
Praying the same for all of us. To not pursue the temporal to fill the temporal. But to have a simple devotion to God who is the only One who can completely fill the void in us.
