I'm Excited

I am finishing the last week of the Beth Moore Bible Study Breaking Free. Today I came across this verse.
Isaiah 26:8-9
Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you;
your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.

My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.
When your judgments come upon the earth,
the people of the world learn righteousness.

As I read over what was written in the workbook it brought to my thoughts the blog from the other day entitled "We're Excited". Here is what I am thinking.

John and I are just so excited about our future grandchild we think and pray for the little one daily and often. We love when people ask us about the coming of the new baby. We don't have much information but will share how excited we are. This new baby is filling our thoughts and she isn't even here.

Now that is what our life with God is to be like. We are to have this excitement that we think about God morning and night. We are to pray/ talk to Him often. It is to be our hearts desire to spend time with God. We are to long to be in God's presence.

I know I love the Lord and I do think about God often but do I all day. No I don't. I will admit some days I think about my family more than God. But if we are thinking about God He will fill our presents and flow out of us.

Did you ever think about that?
