In my previous post I mentioned the “more-itis” that most of us, myself included, suffer from especially here in the West.  Camilla lays out our common struggle, bare before our eyes.  It is the honest truth, and I know so as it cuts like a knife.  Hopefully, it will inspire you as it has me to again, shift directions, away from the things of this world and back to God our only true shelter in these times.  We are on a journey of constant daily course corrections as we navigate the narrow path through this world to pick up our cross daily.

Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

So I will. With God’s help, I will get back to that I-Pod and pay attention to the song that seems to come on more often than any of them…“I’d Rather Have Jesus.” Oh, yes it does, seems like every fourth song. Subtle, isn’t it?
