Come Thirsty

When my stepdad visited last week, he told us a story about how as a little boy he liked to feed his calves fresh milk from buckets.  The eager calves would stick in their heads so deep that they’d come out covered and dripping.

Isn’t that the kind of dramatic effect we want when we plunge into the Word of God?  We want our countenance to drip with so much of God’s love and light that others recount His wonders.

Eternal Lord, help us assimilate Your Word so it becomes us.  Moisturize our dead, dry parts.  Restore our spiritual youth like young baby Christians who love sharing about the richness of Your goodness.  For Your Name’s Sake.

My child, pay attention to what I say.  Listen carefully to my words.  Don’t lose sight of them.  Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body. Proverbs 4:20-22 (NLT)

As the deer longs for streams of water, so my soul longs for you, O God.  Psalm 42:1 (NLT)
