A Weekend Of Thirsting
Now, there's no picture of my thumb because it is definitely not green. After just a couple of weeks my poor plant was droopy and sad...not the vibrant plant I brought home. I watered it ever few days, but it just wasn't making it.
So I started watering it more. You could practically hear it slurping up the water through its little roots. Apparently I was doing the right thing, just not enough of it.
My beautiful plant gets watered just about every day of the week now, and it's even greener, fuller and more vibrant than when I found it.
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Psalm 42:1
Make this a weekend of thirsting for God. In the way both the deer and the green plant long for water, we should be panting, thirsting, longing for the presence of the Lord. Let's lay aside the temporary, worldly things that have us all tied up in knots - that will leave us open for the Living Water that will quench our thirst.
