As Much Of God…

…There is no true happiness apart from holiness, and there is no true holiness apart from knowing what it means to suffer unhappiness. And there is no knowing how to suffer unhappiness apart from God…It’s through suffering unhappiness that God may beckon you into deeper happiness in Him. Don’t be afraid.”

“A.W. Tozer said that you can have as much of God as you want. It’s wild to think about that: How much of God do you really want?How happy do you really want to be? Why would you avoid Him and all your joy — when you could hunger for Him and have as much happiness as you want? What I am trying to tell you is that no matter where you end up, where the road leads: You can have as much God as you want. As much joy in Him as you want. The real believers relentlessly believe that. The world or circumstances will try to dupe you differently– but it’s a law as irrefutable as gravity itself: no matter what — as much God as you want. Is there anything else worth wanting or having?”

“All you have here is one lifetime and time. is. your. life. When you spend time with someone, what you are freely giving away is your life. Do this — this is the way of God. But when you spend time with screens, what you are freely giving away might be your very soul. Isn’t this the way of insanity? Anything stealing your time, it’s stealing your life.
