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.
Even though I have never been physically cast out or lost in a desert, I know what it is to long for God. It is truly like a thirst. God created my body and soul just the way it should be. In that creation is a longing to know God, my creator. This is no happy accident. God is part of our every day, every moment, and is the water we thirst for.
Holy One, Thank you for making me just the way I am. You created all of us with a yearning inside- a yearning to find you and to know you. I pray there be an awakening of this yearning in all your creation. May I be a part of that? Amen
