All Is Bonus

"Who do I have in heaven but you...there is none on earth that I want beside you." (Ps. 73:25). 

My life is full of a great number of gifts, but they are all and every one of them a bonus on top of knowing You.

You are my God and closeness to You is my ultimate good. I seek You because I want to find You...not your benefits or your blessings. I seek You because I desire You and closeness TO You.

I realize You are not to be sought after for the things You will give me. You are the ends I desire. I realize You are not in the business of giving me the things that I would eventually desire more than You. Every gift I do have in life is is bonus.

I delight my heart in being near to You. Make me your love and draw near to me. I am going to draw near to You, because nearness and affection to You alone is my only goal.
