Pursuing The Lord

Lord,

let me know you rightly,

let me see you clearly,

casting aside my perceived gains and merits

for your sake,

your purposes for giving me my life.

Let me prize your presence,

the treasures of knowledge and revelation of you,

and let everything else dim in comparison,

considering it all garbage,

casting off all the cares of this world,

so that I may gain you.

I want to be found in you Lord,

not in any of my own righteousness,

works, or merits,

but in faith,

the righteousness that comes

by believing in you alone.

Lord, to know you,

that I may ultimatley value knowing you,

your Personhood,

your resurrection,

your suffering,

your death,

and become more like you.

Let me continue to press on,

forgetting what is behind,

and reaching for what is ahead,

staying true to your Word

already planted within me,

and eager to develop and grow in you daily.

Be my vision,

be my goal,

be my everything Lord.

I bless you,

Amen.
