Obsessions Stalk

Obsessions stalk, if and when you pursue the urgent and the immediate of life's dimensions, with no large purpose in mind.

Faith and Self

Faith in myself is not denying my Self. The Self interferes as I seek to love, glorify, and serve God as the only worthy candidate for total life purpose.

"Then, calling the crowd to join His disciples, He said, If any of you wants to by my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways take up your cross, and follow Me." - The Bible (Mark 8:34)

Ask God for Wisdom

"Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." - The Bible (Proverbs 3:6)

"But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it." - The Bible (James 1:25)

Inappropriate Obsession?

Loving God and living for Him in life's various dimensions could never turn into an inappropriate obsession. You will never go wrong wanting Him above anyone or anything else.

"I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead. I want to suffer with Him, sharing in His death." - The Bible (Philippians 3:10)
