Forever Obsession

A new month is upon us! These next two weeks are going to be super busy as finals approach and graduation looms on the horizon.

I have a new book idea in the works. For those of you who know me or have been reading this blog for any length of time, you will realize that this is nothing out of the ordinary. I always have a book in the works. However, this story is different. I've been thinking about it for a long time. I can't remember if I've ever shared it on the blog, although it is possible that I have.

The story that I want to share is my own. The highs and lows of my own spiritual journey.

I am the kind of person that very easily becomes absolutely engrossed in things to the point of obsession/addiction. This has happened with books, musics, movies, you name it. If I am not careful, they consume my life. Consequently, I end up doing a lot of "fasting" from certain things for any given length of time so I can refocus my life on God. My life is one never ending battle of obsession. In the end, however, I want God to be my only obsession, or as Steven Curtis Chapman would put it, my "magnificent obsession." This has been a struggle, and will be continue to be a struggle, because I have a mind and heart that very, very easily become obsessed. With anything. With everything. That's what I want to write about. The struggle of keeping God as my forever obsession. And maybe, in the course of writing and sharing my own story, I'll encourage someone else in their own walk with the Lord.

I believe that my obsessive nature is God-given. I was created to be obsessed. I was simply created to be obsessed with Jesus. :)
