Prayer and fasting day 1: so far so good…
Reading a book now by Justin Taylor. He was telling a story of an 85 year old man (father of John Piper) who wrote something in his journal 1 month before he passed away. This is what he said.
“I’ll soon be 86 but I feel strong and my health is good. God has been exceedingly gracious and I am most unworthy of His matchless grace and patience. The Lord is more precious to me the older I get.”
I had to re-read, re-re-read and re-re-re-read the last line. It hit me. Kablam!
What a statement from an 85 year old man.
That is my prayer… my desire and heart… that Jesus would be more and more precious to me the older I get.
