Does Jesus Give You Heartburn?

Well...more like does He make your heart burn. (Luke 24) This thought has been running through my mind ever since I had a conversation with Randy about decaffeinated Jesus. I think about Jesus. I talk about Jesus. But when it comes down to it, does the time that I spend with Him leave me saying, "When He spoke to me, my heart burned within me."

This thought came up again today. I was with Noella again. We were talking about the fun that we've had gallivanting about glorious Kansas City. It has been terribly entertaining, but at the end of the day it leaves you feeling a bit empty. I am not suggesting that we only stay at home to pray and read our Bibles or spend every moment at the House of Prayer. One of my favorite things to do is to get out and see the city that I have spent so many hours praying for. I actually enjoy Kansas City! But the truth remains that my heart is not full when my social calendar is. I need to spend time in the presence of God. It is something that I crave. I need to feel Him love me, and I need to return that love. I need to feel that love burn in my heart.
