Chapter 3....Wanting to be with God

So this morning as I was trying to leave, Taylor begged and begged me to stay home with him.  It made it a real challenge to leave.  I wanted to spend time with him and I didn't get to last night because I had to work. 

As I was driving to work I began to wonder why it is that I don't feel like that when it comes to my relationship with God.  Yes...I know...God does not leave us, but when was the last time you actually had a really hard time pulling yourself away from you quite time. I have to admit, its been a long time since I have.  Most of the time I feel like there is something else I need to get done before too long or my focus becomes distracted with other "things" of life. 

I wonder what life would be like if we had a desire to spend time with God like that.  Where it makes us cry out....where we beg for more time to be with Him. 

Why is it that we are so selfish and so busy that we forget what loving God really means.

Writing that just reminded me of this song....have to share.
