The Desire for Today – The One Thing

The Desire for Today

The One Thing

“One thing have I desired of the Lord…”
Psalm 27:4

The dedicated life is the simple life. When the lens of the heart is focused upon Him alone the affairs of life become ordered and life slows down. The voices from the periphery become muted and indistinct. The stillness of Peace becomes the silence which rules the heart and brings stillness to the soul. His wonder is the fragrance and atmosphere of the moment.

Continue to draw me into the sanctuary of your presence
where I am yours and you are mine.

“My beloved is mine,
and I am his…”
Song of songs 2:16

Quote for Today

“I long to be filled with divine knowledge, divine wisdom, divine love, divine holiness, to the utmost extent of my capacity. I want to feel that all the currents of my soul are interfused in one channel deep and wide, and all flowing towards the heart of Christ.”
– John Griffith

Quote for Today

Spurgeon

“I would sooner be holy than happy if the two things could be divorced. Were it possible for a man always to sorrow and yet to be pure, I would choose the sorrow if I might win the purity, for to be free from the power of sin, to be made to love holiness, is true happiness.”
– Charles Spurgeon

Quote for Today

“Blessed are the single-hearted, for they shall enjoy much peace. If you refuse to be hurried and pressed, if you stay your soul on God, nothing can keep you from that clearness of spirit which is life and peace. In that stillness you will know what His will is.”
Amy Carmichael

Quote for Today – A.W. Tozer

Quote for Today

“The loneliness of the Christian results from his walk with God in an
ungodly world, a walk that must often take him away from the
fellowship of good Christians as well as from that of the unregenerate
world.

   His God-given instincts cry out for companionship with others of his
kind, others who can understand his longings, his aspirations, his
absorptions in the love of Christ; and because with his circle of friends
there are few who share his inner experiences, he’s  forced to walk alone.

   The unsatisfied longings of the prophets for human understanding caused
them to cry out in their complaint, and even our Lord himself suffered in
the same way.

   The man (or woman) who has passed on into the divine Presence in actual
inner experience will not find many who understand him. He finds few
who care to talk about that which is the supreme object of his interest, so
he is often silent and preoccupied in the midst of noisy religious shoptalk.

   For this he earns the reputation of being dull and over-serious, so he is
avoided, and the gulf between him and society widens. He searches for the
friends upon whose garments he can detect the smell of myrrh and aloes
and cassia out of the ivory palaces, and finding few or none, he, like Mary
of old, keeps these things in his heart.

   It is this very loneliness that throws him back upon God. His inability to find
human companionship drives him to seek in God what he can find nowhere
else.”
