The SUNDAY TIMES - 10.5.2008 - Obsession


I LOVE my grandkids
I LOVE chocolate
I LOVE the color red
I LOVE the ocean
I LOVE to create
I could go on and on........
But there is only one thing that I want to be my OBSESSION!

Stephen Curtis Chapman sings this song:
(I am only quoting parts of the lyrics from Magnificent Obsession)
"Return me to the cross
And let me be completely lost
In the wonder of the love that You’ve shown me...
This is everything I want
This is everything I need
I want this to be my one consuming passion
Everything my heart desires Lord, I want it all to be for You,
Jesus Be my magnificent obsession"
*
I want to enjoy life, I want to stop and smell the roses, I want to go places and experience things, but I always want to come back to Christ being first in my life
and I don't ever want to minimize the price He paid on the Cross.
Romans 8:39 is one verse that is a good reminder of His Love for me.
"I'm absolutely convinced that nothing—
nothing living or dead,
angelic or demonic,
today or tomorrow,
high or low,
thinkable or unthinkable—
absolutely nothing can get between us and
God's love because of the way that
Jesus our Master has embraced us."
(The Message Bible)
