My Soul Longeth

The fish swarm underneath the food dispenser. They know the exact location of their food source and circle below it with a fury.

People put their quarter in the machine and receive a handful of the sustenance these fish are seeking. The fish can probably hear the clink-clink-clink of the dispenser as the morsels they crave are ejected.

With one solitary thought in their little brains, the fight for position to receive each tiny piece of food. They come one at a time or in handfuls, and the fish don't care what they have to do, or who they have to swim over, to get one.

Do we have this same craving for God's Word? Do we turn our faces to Heaven and beg Him to fill our open mouths with the food we so deeply desire? If a silly fish can do it for a few crumbs, should Christian women be doing it for the Lord's filling?

David often wrote about his longing and desire to be in communion with the Lord. His words are mine today, and I pray they will be yours, too.

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
Psalm 63:1-8
