Wanting It Bad Enough

My wife is a huge inspiration to me. She said something the other day that amazed me.

“If you want something bad enough, you’ll do anything you can to get it.”

Let me give you a little background information. My wife is a personal trainer and fitness expert. She absolutely  loves Crossfit (and so do I). She was telling one of her clients that if you want to do a specific exercise/skill well, you will do what ever it takes to accomplish it. Well, she took her own advice. One of her many goals is to do a muscle-up. (If you don’t know what that it go here.) So, she bought a set of gymnastic rings and had me install them in our living room! Yes, our living room. We put them there for a couple of reasons. One, they are alway there in front of you so you have no excuse not to practice. Two, it’s the only place in our townhouse where they would fit. Here’s a picture for you.

This idea hit me. If we want to know God, we should do whatever it takes! We will put a Bible in our car, in our bathroom, on the coffee table, in our brief case, on our cell phones and actually spend time with God. Not for creating messages/sermons/lessons, but for our own personal growth.

Do you want to know God so bad that you’ll do whatever it take to know Him more? What are you going to do?
