Daddy was reading Finding Favor with the King by Tommy Tenney (author of One Night With the King) when he went to be with the King. Mom gave Jordan and I the accompanying devotional books for Christmas last year. Yesterday, I read this:

Have you prayed about the difficult or challenging situations in your life? Make sure you've taken care of any wrong motives, unforgiveness, or unconfessed sin in your life. Then prepare a banquet for the Lord through a genuine outpouring of your love in the form of thanksgiving, praise, worship, adoration, and a lifestyle that says yes to Him in word and deed.

This is how you make sure you pray His will instead of merely your wants while also seeking His face as your First Love rather than merely your First Source.

That thought has been challenging to me ever since I read it. The difference between First Love and First Source is all the difference in the world, isn't it?
