The Lofty Goal

The Sarah Young devotional was read to me today and, for this day, it was perfect for me. In my life, I have several goals that I would like to meet. Sometimes, I do not always meet them at the time I think I should meet them, and when that happens, I tend to get discouraged. Today, was one of the days that felt discouraging, because it seemed that none of my goals were being met. Then, someone offered to read the devotional to me, let me share some highlights:

"Do not be discouraged by the difficulty of keeping your focus on Me. I know that your heart's desire is to be aware of My Presence continually. This is a lofty goal; you aim toward it but never fully achieve it in this life....
When you realize that your mind wandered away from Me, don't be alarmed or surprised. You live in a world that has been rigged to distract you. Each time you plow your way through the massive distractions to communicate with Me, you achieve a victory. Rejoice in these tiny triumphs, and they will increasingly light up your days."

Today, I want to remember that Jesus wants relationship with me. That is His goal! Every time I cry out to Him, praise Him, rejoice over His blessings, I am striving towards His goal, and that is lofty!
Say That Again, Lord Jesus, King of Kings, You have a lofty goal for me, and that is relationship with You in all things!
