What does God desire of us?

He wants you. All of you. All that you are. And when you give him it all, there is no greater joy, freedom or embrace. So often we think God is withholding some good thing from us but the truth is he desires to withhold nothing from us. We withhold ourselves from him. He does not desire this. He wants to embrace you. He wants you to embrace him in return. What are you withholding from God? Why are you withholding it? God does not desire sacrifice, Jesus has already done the sacrifice, he just wants to embrace you. To me this is where I find my rest.
