We often say things like “I am thirsty” or “I’m starving” but unless you have gone without food or water or witnessed those that have – my guess is that we really have no understanding of thirst or hunger.

This is a Psalm of David’s when he was in the Desert of Judah.

I suppose you gain an new understanding of thirst when you spend time in a desert.

David’s new understanding of thirst and his desire for water helped him gain perspective on his desire to seek after God.

There is a part of us that longs (thirsts/hungers) to know God.

Have you sought after God? or are you still waiting for Him to come to you?

Don’t go thirsty …

Tomorrow’s Reading (water) – 1 Samuel Chapters 28-31 and Psalm 18

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
