Obsession

Reading in my Utmost for His Highest today and it says... "Paul said, ". . . woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!" He had become aware of the call of God, and his compulsion to "preach the gospel" was so strong that nothing else was any longer even a competitor for his strength. If a man or woman is called of God, it doesn’t matter how difficult the circumstances may be. God orchestrates every force at work for His purpose in the end. If you will agree with God’s purpose, He will bring not only your conscious level but also all the deeper levels of your life, which you yourself cannot reach, into perfect harmony."

I am a woman obsessed.

How true. Unless someone has this call upon their life they cannot fathom the compulsion...the drive...the uneasiness during times it is not fulfilled. I like how Chambers makes the statement that it was..."so strong that nothing else was any longer even a competitor for his strength..." How well I understand that. There is nothing else that compares in my life, that I would rather expend my energy on. And no matter what difficulty comes my way, it is never a question as to whether I will continue. I think of what Mike Murdock says about the fact that nothing great in your life will be achieved until it becomes an obsession with you.
