Psalm 63:1–8

“O 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.” (Psalm 63:1)

A student once defined “yearning” as meaning “wanting something so badly it hurts.” The teacher affirmed the student, “that’s right – it has to hurt.” We may not actually be in pain and suffering when we long for God, but the yearning is real. Perhaps we are in need, and so we long for God’s presence. Perhaps we do not know which way to turn, and we desperately seek God’s direction. Perhaps we simply recognize that without God’s guidance we have little chance of ending up in a good place. Say a prayer, asking for the wondrous refreshment of God’s Spirit.
