there is much that I want.
Sometimes my list looks eerily like a letter to Santa.
I want this…
I need this…
I must have this…
All things that I think will make me happy.
But none of them bring you glory.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” (Psalm 32:9)
And then I am quickly reminded of what brings You glory.
You are glorified when I seek to be instructed by You.
You are glorified when what I want is You.
You are glorified when my happiness is wrapped up in You.
You are glorified when I am satisfied in You.
And so I seek instruction from You.
I seek wisdom from You.
I seek to glorify You.
And therefore, all I want for Christmas is YOU,
All I want for Christmas is YOU.
