“What am I looking for? What do I want? You know, Lord. I want to follow you. I believe in you. My faith is puny and impure, but it’s there. A myriad of other wants and desires swarm around my heart, and sometimes I let them get the upper hand, but even so, Lord, without you in my life, what direction, what hope could I possibly have? Keep me faithful to your will; never let me be separated from you…”
