Desperation is usually a bad thing. Desperate people tend to get exactly the opposite of what they seek:
- People who desperately seek relationships tend to drive people away
- People who are desperate to finish a project tend to make mistakes that cause deadlines to be missed
- People who are driving desperately to get to an appointment tend to delay themselves and everyone else on the road
Therefore, I find it fascinating that desperation is a vital part of chasing God. Only when I realize my broken condition…only when I see my need for a Savior…only when I am at the end of myself…that is when I become desperate and chase the One who can truly make a difference in my life.
Thanks for listening.
