In late July I spent time with a friend of mine, (who we will call Joe Smith). ‘Joe’ can only characterized as strangely steady and joyful in all circumstances. He’s not Jesus. He’s not perfect, but he definitely has a unique undivided focus and obsession for the kingdom of God. He has an appetite for God that leaves me feeling inspired and convicted.
I walked away from our time together with a renewed passion to spend more of my life submerged in God’s word. But, as with most things, a lack discipline meant that when the first wave of distraction broke over me, that desire got washed away.
