I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first commandment: to love my Lord, my God, with all my heart. I don’t want the reputation that I love God, I don’t want to write songs about loving God, I don’t want to talk about loving God. I want to actually love God. When I close my eyes, I want my heart to move. When I close my eyes and I look at Him, I want to feel alive on the inside. I want to look at Him with a fire in my heart and it’s real.

Yes Father, this is my desire…
What you need to drive out an old passion is a new passion, a greater passion. What you need is an over-mastering positive passion. … Just as Rachel was Jacob’s over-mastering passion, the passion of his life, Jesus is our “Rachel.” To the degree that you see Jesus on the cross, loosing absolutely everything for you, He will become a beauty to you. He will become so beautiful in your eyes that you’ll be able to change these things that control you now; they’ll loose their power. Do you know how to work on your heart like that? It’s only by rejoicing in and resting in what Jesus Christ has done for you. Then you can replace your idols. And if you really want to change and want to pound the Gospel more deeply into your heart - Jesus Christ must become your over-mastering positive passion. Timothy Keller (via hereigoagainonmyownn)
