Day 25: Capture

Day 25: Capture

This month, I’m participating in a Five Minute Friday challenge called “31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes,” responding to a one-word prompt for five minutes each day in October. Click here to join in!

When I hear the word “capture,” I think of the song by tobyMac called “Captured.” It says,

All I want to do is get into You
You’ve got me captured
By Your Love
All I want to do is stay here with You
You’ve got me raptured
Can’t get enough

I want that to be my prayer. I want to be so captivated by the beauty of Christ that I just keep coming back for more. I want my primary desire to be communion with Him, to the point where I will sacrifice anything else to make time to be with Him.

“I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still.” –A.W. Tozer

God, give me an unrelenting passion for you. Let me seek Your face and Your presence more than Your gifts and Your blessings. Let me spend more time marveling at Your greatness than asking You to fix my problems and grant my requests. Let me be captured by your love.
