The Thirsty Soul

by Rev. Tom Gray


David’s deep relationship with God strengthened and uplifted him even in the hardest of times. One of the most beautiful of his Psalms begins,

As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God. (Psalm 42)

Many of us desire just such an experience. David’s spiritual depth came through disciplines that explain how he could honestly write the above:

I am not saying that David did any of these things perfectly, nor can I say that anyone does. But even as these disciplines drew him toward God, they can do the same for us. Think on this. Take it seriously and try to live it a day at a time.
