I Don't Wait Anymore

I recently finished reading I Don't Wait Anymore by Grace Thornton.
Here are some quotes that stood out to me.

"'It just makes me think about how incredibly big God is,' she said. 'The fact that He created a universe so big we can’t even find the edge of it after decades of looking for it. I mean, that’s just crazy.'"
(page 31, Kindle Edition)

"'God,' I whispered, 'I’m going to sit here every morning. I’m going to read Your Word for an hour at least. I’m going to pray, not for answers, not for You to send something into my life to make it make sense or to give it direction, but just to know You, to know You for You. To hear You speak. I just want You. I don’t want the life I have. If everything I’ve been taught is true, nothing in my life and nothing that I want is better than me really knowing You. Please show me how to know You. Please show Yourself to me. Please open Your Word to me so that my heart can know You.'"
(page 51, Kindle Edition)

"That you go to God to get God, not to get what God can give."
(page 54, Kindle Edition)

"Please spend my life the way You want to, the way that’s best for Your kingdom. My life is Yours. I just want to know You more."
(page 95, Kindle Edition)

"They really saw Him, and they wanted Him alone. There was no wavering. It didn’t feel like a sacrifice. Easy, no. But simple, yes."
(page 111, Kindle Edition)

"God, let me see You this year, let me know You more by the end of this year than I do at the beginning of it."
(page 140, Kindle Edition)

"That’s how the best narratives happen. Yours. Mine. I don’t need my story to look fancy. I don’t need it to look traditional, and I don’t need it to be crazy and adrenaline filled. I just need it to give me more of Jesus. I don’t want to settle for anything less."
(page 220, Kindle Edition)

You have just finished reading I Don't Wait Anymore.
