I am really thirsty, God! I’m thirsty for you! “A white-tailed deer drinks from the creek; I want to drink God, deep draughts of God. I’m thirsty for God-alive.”TM
Without a relationship with you, God, life isn’t really worth living. No matter what I eat or what I drink… I’m still hungry and thirsty. “I’m on a diet of tears—tears for breakfast, tears for supper.”TM It may just as well be tears, nothing satisfies my thirst! So, I stop and take inventory. I start by “…emptying out the pockets of my life.”TM To see what I have of value!
As I look back, I remember all your faithfulness! I have forgotten how wonderful it is to praise you! So I just encourage myself with your love! I tell myself to hang in there! It’s not so bad! “Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God—soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.”TM Ahh, Yes! That’s all I need!
