How much of God do you want?

"I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please, not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I don't want enough of Him to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want the warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please."
Quote by Wilbur Rees

In all honesty, how much of God do you really want? And what keeps you from wanting more of Him?

Quoted from Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver

I am thinking let’s skip the sack and I’ll take the Costco jumbo size purchase. God—give me all of You that I can handle!

Reading today Genesis 36:1-43 and 1 Chronicles 1:35 through 2:2

A reading of genealogy today. A little easier of a read. Digging into God’s Word has been challenging but also so rewarding. It is alive and active and I have been spoken to every single day by something in it!

vs 24 kinda made me laugh. Think they used the hot springs like a hot tub? Reminded me of a Dr. Quinn episode!

A summary of today: Esau…father of the Edomites

Short and sweet!

Here is a blast from past –I was at my Grandmother’s last week taking her to town…There is a picture of my dad and that I love but it’s one of those supersized ones so I’m not sure how to make a copy…so I took a picture of it! I think I am in 6th grade here. See my nice turned up collar? Seems like FOREVER ago.
