"O, God, I have tasted {your} goodness, and it has 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 that I may know {you} indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow {you} up from this misty lowland where I have wandered so long."
In Jesus' Name. Amen.
From "The Pursuit of God" by, A.W. Tozer
