Burn Your Golden Calves

Before I begin, I want to clarify that I am not having a self pity party, nor do I encourage you to. As I attempt to draw nearer to God I see more and more how less and less I need Him…only I do need Him. I hate that most days I wake up and don’t even acknowledge that He’s given me the breath to do so. I just don’t wanna be the I’m saved, who cares about anything Christian. I wanna desire Him wholly and I don’t, but I working on it…so please bear with me.

The Israelites, while waiting on Moses to come down from meeting with God, decided to make their own god. They carved a golden calf and worshipped and praised it…despite all God had shown them…it wasn’t enough. As I read I thought of all my golden calves and it broke my heart. And you know what, no advice. I need God, that’s all. All I need is God…but it He what I really want?
