Captivate

It’s been forever since I’ve thought about this song but it came to mind as I rolled out of bed this morning.

I also, finally, took some time to watch the message from church this past Sunday. With all the preparations with baptism weekend I had yet to hear it in its entirety.
The God Box Part 6

One of the ideas I jotted down as I watched was “be captivated by who God is.”

Gosh, this is the key to everything when it comes to our daily walks with the Lord.

Here’s the definition of captivate:

to attract and hold the attention or interest of, as by beauty or excellence; enchant

To be captivated by something we must be intentional with our time and our positioning, we must be open and willing to allow something or someone to hold our attention. It requires humility and a desire to learn. And what the lyrics remind us above …we must be emptied in order to be filled with more of Him.  We must create space for this to take place.

I saw a great quote on Twitter last night from Christine Caine:

“Don’t have a ‘know-it-all’ spirit, but a ‘tell-me-more’ spirit. Be a lifelong learner!” 

I love that reminder.

Lord, I want to be captivated by who You are today. I want to take time to talk to You, to discuss things over with You.  I want to be so in tune with Your voice that I don’t miss out on more of Your grace, more of Your love and more of Your beauty.  Help me to taste and see You all around me today!
