Hungering for more.

John Piper has a heart for the Lord in a way that very few men possess in our society today. The boldness and passion for our Lord and Savior drips off the page and into the heart of the reader. This is an excellent book for any believer, young or old in the faith, to draw near to Christ and know Him in a more intimate way.
Delight in the Lord! This book is incredible for every season of life! Dive deep, don't be content with just believing but be infused with the WORD!!

“The pursuit of joy in God is not optional. It is not an “extra” that a person might grow into after he comes to faith. It is not simply a way to “enhance” your walk with the Lord. Until your heart has hit upon this pursuit, your “faith” cannot please God. It is not saving faith. Saving faith is the confidence that if you sell all you have and forsake all sinful pleasures, the hidden treasure of holy joy will satisfy your deepest desires. Saving faith is the heartfelt conviction not only that Christ is reliable, but also that He is desirable. It is the confidence that He will come through with His promises and that what He promises is more to be desired than all the world.”  - John Piper

Lord may I be a woman that is not content with just knowing a few verses here and there...but that I would be a woman of the Word. That it is what comes out of my heart always. Drinking deeply, often and never satisfied outside of You.
