As the hind longs for the running waters,
so my soul longs for you, O God.
Athirst is my soul for God, the living God. Ps 42, 43
When life has gotten us down to that desert place.
When we so long for something different.
When we long for someone who really cares.
They won’t be found in the new cars, or in the new games,
or in new spouses.
They won’t be found in the attention crime gets us.
They won’t even be found within ourselves.
Only God can fill the void that longs to be filled
within our hearts.
And when our souls find God, we will have found LIFE.
And then we will have found Jesus,
the living stream through whom it finally
all makes sense!
