This is Amazing!

"When you daily crave intimacy with Christ like you'd crave fine wine or a romantic evening, you dwell in freedom. When you desire Christ's company because being with Him is fun, refreshing, and your life's greatest joy, you celebrate freedom."

This is exactly what I'm feeling right now! Never before has my hunger for His word or my desire to commune with Christ been so powerful; I prayed to have that hunger, and now all I can think of is growing closer, talking more, laughing and rejoicing in His presence. It's all I want, to have an extremely intimate, extremely personal relationship. What's amazing is that I have Christ to thank for not only His person and for being the beautiful, perfect object of my affections, but also for instilling in me the passion for Him that I feel now.


  1. Jackson, i am so encouraged by the joy leaping out of my computer screen from your post and the others today! Jesus is really incredible. What an awesome priveledge to be His creation! When we crave our creator He knows what His creation needs and really enjoys.....HIM!


  2. Jackson! That put a smile on my face! I am soo excited for your desire to commune with God and to grow deeper. I will be praying that you continue to just invest time with Him no matter the crazy schedule of senior year.

  3. This was WONDERFUL to read. God is so dang good.

  4. Dude, I'm with you 100%. I'm pretty sure that I can add on that people notice when you have that desire. It oozes from your skin and permeates the air around you.

    Its a darn good feeling :)


  5. bro, write this down somewhere. and keep it for the next 40 years. so you can come back to it when you're in a "tired and disenchanted place." because this is bona fide truth spoken by a disciple in love with his Savior.

    thanks for the encouragement, Barnabas (Acts 11:23-24)!!
