If you've read my blog for any length of time you know that I have three boys. Each with their own personalities, likes and dislikes and consuming desires.
You think consuming desire is a strong set of words.
for various things.
one trains, police, paramedics and all things firefighter related!
Another is consumed with garage band and writing music.
Another is so consumed with Nintendo DS Mario Kart that when he awakes...
he jumps out of bed...
and starts looking for the DS...
If I don't get to him quickly...he'll start playing it.
How do we get out of bed?
Are we consumed with the worries of the day ahead?
Fantasizing about some vacation or a redecorated room?
Thinking about the loss of income and the state of the economy?
Do we wake up consumed with thoughts of our Savior?
And many of those who practiced magic brought their books together and began burning them in the sight of everyone; and they counted up the price of them and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
SO THE WORD OF THE LORD WAS GROWING
Mightily and PREVAILING....
God's word can only grow and prevail...
if we are consumed with Him.
