Your Longing

You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

Psalm 63:1 (NIV)

The psalmist here speaks of a longing for God that engulfs the whole being. A longing which finds its fulfillment only in God. Looking to God as the only way to fill an emptiness within a person’s spirit. Seeing God as the only One who can provide what the soul needs to be sustained.

Listen to this song by Michael W. Smith, Breathe

Does your soul long for the Lord?

How does the Lord provide what you need to sustain your soul?

What came to mind as you listened to the words of the song?

May you find what your soul longs for in the Lord.
