Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Please remember the Parks family in your prayers.  Bro. Ernest Parks, former pastor of our church, who turned 91 this past Wednesday, graduated to Heaven early this evening at around 6:15 p.m.  He and his wife are still on the church membership, as well as 2 of their daughters.  He pastored our church for 40+ years, I believe.  A dear and faithful man of God, he will be missed!

I love the term "graduated." Praying for the whole family and praising God for the long, wonderful life he was blessed with! I sure wish my dear aunt Sharon made it to 91, but the Lord's ways are higher than my ways....
