“We can’t want our life and want God at the same time.”

– Lisa Whittle

A Word from Kim: Isn’t this the heart of the matter? Isn’t this at the root of everything? We cannot want anything else more than God. We cannot love anything else more than God. We cannot desire, pursue, crave, long for, or partake of anything more than God. I think the struggle that many of us face stems from this – this wanting life or the riches of life more than God. Can there be any satisfaction, any completion, any peace, any joy, any thing that fulfills us more than God? Certainly not! There will never be anything that comes even remotely close. God knows this. Shouldn’t we learn this lesson once and for all? #IWantGod
