Thirsting for God

Some of you may have noticed I’ve been less routine in my writings than I had been during Advent.  After times of extensive writing, I find myself exhausted and in need of filling.  So in the midst of a few projects ongoing, I have been spending time in God’s Word, quietly letting the Living Water refresh me.

When is the last time you were thirsting for God? 

Imagine how you are on a hot day when the sun is out and the wind is blowing and the dust is flying.  You get thirsty.  You know you must drink some water before you get dehydrated.

I think there are probably a lot of dehydrated Christians out there.

Thirsting for GodPlowing ahead with the daily grind.

Thirsty but not wanting to take the time

Away from the many tasks at hand

To let God’s Spirit soothe our souls.

Thirsting for God in a troubled land

Distracted by many trials pressing

Keeping us from the Living flow

That our spirits would find refreshing

If only we took the time to know

The healing power of the Lord

As we take a Sabbath rest and find

In the Word our souls restored.
