“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 63:1

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

O God, You are my God,

for You I long;

for You my soul is thirsting.

My body pines for You like a dry weary land without water.

.

– Psalm 63:1

REFLECTION…and PRAYER…

.

Being with the Lord is like this

– there are times

when we feel like a tree growing on the bank of a glorious, flowing river;

then there are times

when we feel like there’s not a drop of water in sight.

.

Both can be beautiful moments.

.

Yes, because whenever we thirst for the Lord,

it is a significant instance of spiritual truth and of grace,

which helps us realise how much we love Him

and how much we need Him in our life.

.

Yes, we should truly treasure all such moments.

.

My Lord and my God,

today I just want to stop and thank You

for the grace You gave me of knowing how life is,

both with You and without You.

.

Today I know that with You in my heart,

even the darkest of moments are filled with grace

because my yearning for You makes me realise how much I love You and need You,

and that realisation fills me with incomparable inner joy.

.

Thank You, my Lord.

I love You, my God!
