The whole life of a Christian is a holy desire. It is a deep thirst and a hunger for God. One of the  main reasons people do not understand or experience the sovereignty of grace and the way it works through the awakening of sovereign joy is that their hunger and thirst for God is so small.  Give me a  man in love he knows what I mean.  Give me one who yearns; give me one who is hungry, 

give me me one far way in the desire who is thirty and sighs for the springs of the eternal country. Give me that sort of a man, he know what I mean. But if you give me a cold man, he just does not know what I am talking about… Aurelius Augustine
