“God created us to live with a single passion: to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life. The wasted life is the life without this passion. God calls us to pray and think and dream and plan and work not to be made much of, but to make much of him in every part of our lives.”—John Piper
Tonight on the way home from work, an old Amy Grant song came to my mind. It was one that Michael W. Smith wrote for her, but the lyrics to the chorus crushed me tonight and were just what I need to hear. You may or may not remember this one. The Chorus goes like this:
Lead me on Lead me on To a place where the river runs Into your keeping, oh.
Lead me on Lead me on The awaited deliverance Comforts the seeking…lead on.
