I'm Hungry.

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

And not for burgers or chocolate or pizza.
Nor for lentil loaf, baked fish, or pink grapefruit.

I am hungry for more of the Lord. More of Jesus. More of God's presence in my life. More of the filling of the Holy Spirit. Only God can really satisfy.

Humankind is naturally spiritual - and if we don't fill that with with the spirit of the living God who made us, we're going to try to fill that emptiness with all manner of other things. Including food. But we can eat and eat and never really be satisfied, because the spirit knows something is missing.

The great thing about recognizing this, is that at the same time He fills, you hunger for more of Him - but it's GOOD. It leads to LIFE, ABUNDANT life. And you don't have to feel guilty about "eating too much" spiritual food!

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."(Matt. 5:6)

    He not only feeds us spiritually, instead of with comfort food, but contacts us daily, to remind us that He's there! What an awesome post-thank you for the gentle reminder!

    I am certainly experiencing this; the decision to accept the cochlear implantation was an intellectual acknowledgement that I had growing up to do, changes yet again to make, to continue the Work I have come to understand I am here to do; not knowing exactly what the Nature of the changes would be nor their demands, required a daily act of Faith over Fear; coming to terms continually with the actual challenges as they define themselves in the Present through Christ has been both exhilarating, profoundly disturbing, deeply humbling, and full of Joy and Grief simultaneously; the ultimate paradox. and so I have since July of two years ago this coming, been Playing Ball on Running Water, God's got my back and the Devil's got my toes. Thanks be to God
