Focusing on God

Sometimes, I am just overwhelmed with love for God. In such a manner that my heart feels warm, warmer than any other emotion I've experienced before. It feels as though I will burst. He's my everything; the reason I do what I do, the reason I love, and the reason I endure. He's my life.

I then start to think about how far away from Him I really am. Yet, I can still receive His love. Even from that distance! What a miracle that is! I look at my life, and am embarrassed at the thought of meeting Him like this. But then I stop and think about how God doesn't want us focused on where we are now, but to learn and keep our eyes fixed on where He is calling us to be.
