My first passion

Having an intimate relationship with my God.

So I went to bed last night thinking through all my passions and the draft posts I had written. I felt confident that my work was complete. Then, this morning as I was reading my bible study for the day, I heard a small whisper, "My love?" Yes, I respond (thinking in my head, I am busy in your word right now, what do you want?) "My love, you forgot one." What? No I didn't!

I turn back to Psalm 63 and begin to read; "Oh God! You are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for You and my body longs for You in a dry and weary land, where there is no water. I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because Your love is better than life my lips will glorify you."

This is so my life! And as much as I would love to say that my first passion is always my walk with my King, it isn't. I need constant nudges (okay, maybe more like shoves) in the right direction. What I can honestly say is this
I want my first passion to be my relationship with Christ.

I truly believe I was created to bring glory to my creator, so please, when I get all OCD about things that don't matter, feel free to point, nudge, or shove me back to what is important.
