But I’ll kneel down,
Wait for now
And I’ll kneel down,
Know my ground.
God doesn’t want religious duty. He doesn’t want a distracted, half-hearted “Fine I will read a chapter……now are You happy!? attitude. God wants His Word to be a delight to us, so much so that we meditate on it day and night.
My grandparents, especially in recent years, have shown a pattern of deepening in their faith. At over 90 years of age, my grandpa, for instance, is engaging in Bible Studies with more free passion and application than perhaps any other time in life. That sort of deepening focus leads to an enriched confidence as life enters its twilight. A marriage where a couple is pursuing to be in right relationship with God is a forward thinking and other-oriented relationship. A deepening faith encourages humility and integrity and love— elements necessary to a life-long marriage.
