Twilight

As I read Twilight, I felt the strongest desire to be dazzled by something. By definition, I want to be "bewildered by spectacular display"!!!!
daz·zle (dzl)
v. daz·zled,
1. To dim the vision of, especially to blind with intense light.
2. To amaze, overwhelm, or bewilder with spectacular display: a figure skater who dazzled the audience with virtuosic jumps.
v.intr.
1. To become blinded.
2. To inspire admiration or wonder.


As I read this definition, I realize that I don't want to be blinded. Or do I? Am I longing for something so intense and powerful that it would leave it's mark? Still reading "Crazy Love" I am concluding that if we did truly know God and know Him well, we would be more dazzled.

God, take my desires to be dazzled and satisfy them with Yourself! Oh, how far I wonder when I glance away from you!

What a wonderful prayer! I am sure that if I went to God more, truly believing He will dazzle me, I would look less for cheap substitutes.

I've been sick for two weeks and feeling uninspired. Today I'm finally feeling a little better, didn't go to Mexico with Jedidiah, so all the rest should bring some new inspiration! :)
