O God, you are my God, I seek you,
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on your name.
My soul is satisfied as with a rich feast,
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips
when I think of you on my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
(Psalm 63:1-8, NRSV)
In a dry and weary land where there is no water I look to you as my refreshment!
The love of God is better than cool water on a hot day, or a warm blanket in the dead of winter!
My soul and life are satisfied by God. Allow your soul to cling to Him and to rest in His shade.
Allow His love and refreshment to permeate your being.
