All I Want

When the boys were little
they would ask me...
"Mom, if you could have anything in the world...
what would it be?"
I would say, "For the Lord to come back."
Well, they caught onto that pretty quick.

So then they would qualify that with,
"Besides the Lord coming back..."
And all I could ever tell them was

I want my sons to love the Lord Jesus Christ
more than I have loved Him...
To give more of themselves than I have given...
To die to selves more than I have died.
To love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
To make up what I have left out.
That's all I want...all I care for...

Because He alone is worth living and dying for.
