This seems to be my response most of the time when asked how I am doing. In truth, I am tired. I AM pregnant. And who knows, I could have low iron ( I did with all my pregnancies).
But in reflecting inward...I am finding I am more than just tired.
I think in all honesty, I am hungry. I am not referring to physical hunger (though I am that too -- because I am pregnant! Wink) Moreover I am hungry for something deeper.
I am hungry for God, wanting to love Him and know Him in greater intimacy. I need him to water my soul.
I long to have a heart approach Him daily just as I am -- poor and hungry. He invites me to come to Him so that I can leave rich and full. What a glorious exchange!
I open up my heart and my life to Him and
to what he has to say
Putting away my to-do list
clear my calendar
and the only appointment I have
His hand gently on me
embracing me with Grace
rescuing me from the barren life of busyness.
He is longing for me -- to take it all from me
scrape off all the activities and responsibilities and replace it with things HE longs for me to possess.
Connecting with the God of the universe who it just waiting for me to slow down and sit still; to listen and learn from the very Creator of TIME itself.
"Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things." Psalm 107:8-9 (NIV)
Psalm 63:1, "O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water." (NIV)
