“I want to want You!”

O God, I have tasted Your goodness,
and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.
I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace.
I am ashamed of my lack of desire.
O God, the Triune God,
I want to want You;
I long to be filled with longing;
I thirst to be made more thirsty still.
Show me Your glory, I pray,
so I may know You indeed.
Begin in mercy a new work of love within me…
Give me grace to rise and follow You up from this misty lowland
where I have wandered so long.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  1. Thanks for posting this Norm. I have tasted God’s goodness many times. When times are good, I sometimes forget to spend time with him. I am constantly reminded that life is a journey of growing in faith and trust. I won’t reach perfection until the day he takes me to my everlasting home. Lord, help me to remember that I need you always, in the good and tough times. Give me a desire to be filled to overflowing each and every moment that you give me.
