More than My Necessary Food

I began this year with the goal of reading through the Bible.  I have done this before, so I knew that in reality the Word would be reading me. Day after day, in old and new covenants, Words of Life draw me more deeply into His presence.  I am seeing and hearing the things that weigh me down: habits, thoughts, tendencies that fill me up, leaving little room for Light.

So, I continue to lean into the fast that chose me....  I listen to His voice in the voice of people.  I adjust myself in order to hear and obey...and I seek; I worship; I hunger for Life and Light...I find Him who was there all the time...the One I praise; the One who satisfies like no one and nothing else can.  I long for home...


O God, You are My God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.
So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.

Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
Thus, will I bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.
Psalm 63:1-5


  1. Such a thoughtful post to remind us that spending time in the word serves to shape us, mold us and nurture us into His likeness.
