"As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God."
My soul pants.
And I'm quenched.
Day after day.
Day after day.
Thoroughly drenched in the cool, constant streams of His love.
The ceaseless springs of His grace.
I walk in His sanctuary and see Him, smell Him, reach out to touch Him.
I watch these children, His little Image Bearers, and marvel.
"For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
He will lead them to springs of living water."
He LEADS to springs of living water. That means I have to be looking for Him to be able to follow. I have to SEE Him.
OH, how He shows Himself in a thousand different ways every day of my life.
