As the deer pants for the water,
so my soul pants for You, O God.
Psalm 42:1

I used to think that something was wrong with me when I felt an aching in my heart that I could not explain. Then I heard someone on a CD say this... "Do you ever feel like there's an aching in your heart that you can't explain? That's a hunger for more of God". I knew that was me. And it was a hunger that God placed in my heart so that I would run hard after Him. It's been an amazing marathon! God will meet us when we run after Him.

May you hunger and thirst for more of Him that causes you to run harder after everything He has for you today.

For more WFW, pop over to Lori's at All You Have to Give.

I agree, Mary. What an encouraging and beautiful WFW. I'd never heard it explained quite that way, but I love it!

Beautiful Mary and sweet blessings!
I love this verse and the imagery in this Psalm! But this photo and light over this bubbling stream refreshes me. I so enjoy the insights you shared...not up to running today but I leisurely will plunge into His Living Water...and I so get this: hungering for Him so much that you run with all you have toward Him & His cross! Thank you for shedding His light in a new direction on this...peggy

Awesome! Just think, when we're in eternity, there won't be any more heart ache. :~D

Ah, yes. I love that verse. The song comes to mind as well; I have not sung it in eons!
