onething: enlarge my heart


Papa, keep it up! I once again am reminded of Dancing in Flames and Your desire to walk with us through this life. Through the joys and the tears, through the victories and the fears. It's about the journey with you Papa. Step by step through the fire. Thank you that you walk with me and with all of us. You are here. Thank you Papa.

Our capacity for life is so limited that the sandbox toys of Hollywood seem to fill us. We need Papa to enlarge the capacity of our heart so that the world can't possibly fill it and we need Papa's life to live.

Enlarge my heart Papa. Make me so hungry that I cannot be satisfied by this life. Tear me open that I might only be filled by you. Enlarge my heart Papa.

I wrote these words today as I listened to Corey Russell minister at The Rock during the Sun AM service of onething. Papa's at work in me these days - and hopefully in you too. Each day I seem to grow in awareness of His desire to be with us - to really be present in our moments.
