Drawing Near: Days Rush By

Loving Father,

 

Days rush by.

Moments of joy and sorrow mingle together.

I’m trying always to finish the here and now, the upcoming.

Yet sometimes I wonder: Am I wasting my life? Am I doing what truly matters? In Your eyes?

In those fleeting moments when eternal questions cross my mind, I focus. Just briefly. Because without hesitation the present returns, pressing me to do what needs doing. Now.

But this longing lingers…

I want to be pure in heart. I want to see you. NOW.

I want to know You more TODAY–I don’t want to wait until eternity.

I want my life to count. For You.

And in Your love, You’ve made a way: Jesus’ blood washes me clean, enabling me to see You … know You.

Keep cleansing me, Lord, so I can know You more…

As days rush by.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

“And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent.” John 17:3, NASB
