DAY 151

Rain! The thirsty ground laps up the life-giving water. You can hear the earth and the creatures giving a satisfied, "Ahhh."

Psalm 42:1
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God

Drought. It comes subtly. Maybe life is busy, too much to do, so time with the Lord decreases.

Until we notice the burned edges around our life. The joy is diminished, peace has fled, a raw gnawing in our soul sets our hearts heavenward.

Where is He?

He is as near as an aching thirsty heart. A quick answer to one of His children, if we but seek, ask, and knock.

Drink freely and often, rejoicing in His Presence and His Word.


  1. Head thrown back, arms spread wide, mouth open... fill me Lord! Fill me up!!
    Good on, Patty. ;)

  2. Yes, Patty, thirst and drought sneak up on us. Nice, Jackie!
