This speaks to my heart so. It is one of my favorite verses ever.
I love it like I do because of the beautiful scene that is painted (much like
this painting) of what it truly feels like to thirst for God.
I cannot think of a better way to express this.
This verse always reminds me of a quote that I think is very much
connected to it. It was said by Ann B. Davis, who played Alice in
"The Brady Bunch".
I read it one day after she passed away this
Summer and I thought it was so beautifully said and one of
the truest statements I have ever heard or read.
"I am convinced we all have a God-shaped space in us,
and until we fill that space with God, we'll never know
what it is to be whole."
I am so thankful that this is true. A trillion times more wonderful
and meaningful is my life to have God fill that space inside me.
My soul truly does thirst for God, sometimes in ways that I feel cannot
be quenched because my longing for everything that IS God, that
is pure and righteous, is so great.
I just love the blessing of being created with the intrinsic need
for God... because without God, all there is is emptiness.
How refreshing to our souls it is to
be "filled up" with Him when our souls are thirsting...
which is always, because we are always in need of God :)
... in need of a "drink" in this dry world.
Blessings to you!
Have a great weekend, everyone ♥
