I was wondering why after just a few short days of going back to the YMCA, my fire and desire to work out keeps fading (many of you know my background with fitness). I feel no love for it at all after just a day or so. Then I read this quote and now I know why:

"The Lord is very jealous over any saint who is utterly abandoned to Him. He does not let that believer have any pleasures at all outside of Himself." M.Jeane Guyon

I can only be consumed with Him. He will not allow much of my time or love to go toward anything but Him. How odd in a way, how odd in today's world of pleasing the flesh, how odd in view of everyone's call for "balance". There is no balancing God.

Abandoned to God along with you, Chanin
