Lord, I do want to be consumed by hunger for you! So why am I not hungrier than I am?
I know exactly why, Lord and I am so sorry for it.
You see Lord, I still choose to fill up on so many empty calories. I am not saying that what I consume is all junk but so much of it is just empty of any spiritual goodness. Most of what I do, hear, see and speak isn’t tearing me away from you, yet it isn’t bringing me any nearer to you.
I have tasted, I’ve seen and I know the goodness of you Lord!
So why do I take so many useless bites and feel myself up on emptiness?
Stir me Lord to turn away from my table and to turn towards yours, to sit with you, to consume that which will not only taste good but can only benefit me, and that which will draw me nearer to your truth, your essence, your goodness! Lord, I am also asking for you to stir me to share your table with the world!
Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
Psalm 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
You know something Lord, I’m starting to feel pretty hungry…………….
