When a child is little and they express that they are bored, a lot of times that can be translated as them being lonely. At the moment, they feel lonely. They want someone to be with them, to entertain them, to talk, and love them.
I have a pretty busy schedule with school, work, church service, serving, and CIRCLES. Even amidst all of the business of life, whenever I get a free moment I simply feel bored. I can't wait for the next thing that I have to do. I hate that feeling because like a child, it truly does feel lonely. Even as I write this, I have been alone for the past few hours and it some ways it hurts. But in the midst of these feelings I feel conviction. Because isn't God always there? What if there was a point that even if you were alone you didn't actually feel lonely. That's where I wanna be. I wanna with the Holy Spirit all the day long. Communing, fellowshipping, and speaking with him. I do do that often, but not enough.
I guess...I guess I just want more of the Holy Spirit. So Come Holy Spirit. Come. Come fill me and my brothers & sisters of CIRCLES. Fill us up so much that you just pour out of us, overflow, and flood the world around us. All we want is you. Your son, Nick.
