Some days, like today, I feel empty. I still open my Bible, I still read– but I find myself flipping around, searching for something but I don’t even know what. My heart sits heavy in my chest.
God, where do I read when all you have for me feels out of reach?
This morning, all I could manage was a Psalm– and there in the lyrical prayer journals of David, I found what my heart was saying.
My spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed.
I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.
I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.
Be the living water my heart needs today, Jesus. Pour into me and through me.
What have you been reading in Scripture? How has God been speaking to you?
