When you know God, you can’t help but want to keep knowing him and loving him more. This sometimes conflicts with some other things you used to love, and it often means letting go of things that were once important to you. But you can’t stop, because even if you want to, you cannot turn your back on this irresistible grace.

Lately, this is something I’ve been challenged with as well. I find that as I get to know God more, there are some things that I used to do or watch (without a second thought) that no longer draw me anymore. It’s like the scales have been lifted off of my eyes and what I used to count as ‘entertainment’, strikes a discord with my heart. The images and language make me uncomfortable now. I’m left wondering what I found appealing in the first place… the spirit grows stronger as the flesh diminishes.
Taste and see that the Lord is good. – Psalm 34:8
