My Soul Cries!

There is something about having a burning hunger for the deeper things of God, its a combination of being lovesick with Jesus and basking in holiness and holy fear of the Lord. I can understand this at some deep level today through King David's Psalm 63:

1 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.

2 I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your glory.
3 Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
4 I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

6 On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
7 Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
8 I cling to you;
your right hand upholds me.

9 Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God will glory in him,
while the mouths of liars will be silenced

My tweet today was based on Misty Edwards song "My soul, My soul dries out without you, my soul cries, my soul cries. Hunger is an escort for the deeper things of God"

Blessings & Shalom,
