If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here. Exodus 33:15 

I've always interpreted this verse as Moses wanting God to come with them so that there will be sure success in the end, that the land they're conquering will surely be won. It's just last night that I began to think that maybe Moses wasn't that interested in what God was offering him. Maybe he was just so in love with God, all he wanted was God's presence in his life and nothing else. Maybe he just wanted his relationship with God to be okay.

Lord, my wife and I have been praying for so many things but now that some of those things are coming to pass, I'm having this feeling inside that says, "you know what God, it doesn’t really matter whether we get it or not. All I want is You in my life. All I want is deeper intimacy with You. If I lose everything now, as long as You're in my life, I'm going to be okay.

You are my life. You are my all in all. You are all I want.

It’s always a fresh beginning with You, a new outpouring of hope and inspiration, a RESTART.
