'O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you, my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.' Psalm 63:1
This summer was the hottest yet.
Triple digits, dry & dead grass, and wildfires was what summer about here.
The excitement that a few sprinkles of water produced, signaling the mere possibility of rain, was as though gold would be falling from the sky.
Rain was yearned for in a dry and weary land. Our yards were parched and amid the wildfires, the lack of rain brought forth desperation.
We're all familiar with desperation.
Something that build yup when we cannot wait any longer for what we wish for.
What must the presence of God bring that David longed for it so?
Peace. Hope. Comfort. Love. Forgiveness.
Do you desperately need any of these?
If you're like any other human on this earth - you do.
Or lives can go through some pretty rough patches that leave our soul bare, dry and weary.
Life's mishaps can leave us like a person searching for a drop of water in the middle of a desert.
At which point nothing else will satisfy.
The Lord has so much to offer for your longing soul.
Come to His table and drink from the water of His cup.
Drink and be restored.
