My Soul Thirsts

Image

This is from the devotion I wrote for my book club yesterday. I felt I should share it with you:

I’d like to share some bits and pieces of Psalm 42 with you. While I was working in the kitchen I began to hum. I’ve never really been a hummer before. But, this year I’ve begun humming…not on purpose. It just happened. I’m not sure if it’s old age or joy or both…but, nevertheless, I hum. Tonight I found myself humming this verse. I decided perhaps God wanted me to share it. So, I hope this speaks to someone. (Be thankful you don’t have to hear the humming. 🙂 )

Psalm 42:1-2 ESV
1As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God…

…3 My tears have been my food
day and night…

…5 Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation 6 and my God.
My soul is cast down within me;
therefore I remember you…

…8 By day the LORD commands his steadfast love,
and at night his song is with me,
a prayer to the God of my life…

…11 Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation and my God.

    One of the many of my favorite Psalms. So many times I say some of these verses as I pray, meditate, or am going through a difficult situation. Thanks for sharing, Lisa.
