"I stretch out my hands to You; My soul longs for You, as a parched land." - Psalm 143:6
As we continue on into 2019 we lean into the secret place, spending more time with God, there is a new hunger for communion, compelling us to "throw away" everything that carries no heavenly or eternal purpose. We are in a season where nothing else matters except Jesus!
A new hunger is growing in us. It is essential to throw away the things that seemed okay to us in our last season: old thought processes, busyness for the sake of busyness, and meaningless things that consume our time. Some things we have allowed in our lives cannot stay with us because of where we are going. Many are realizing it is meaningless—all is meaningless—except for our calling in Christ! The only thing that matters is God!
