My body and soul screamed for satisfaction.
Driving home from church I kept getting urges and cravings.
Coffee? Ice crème? Rhubarb pie? Every food place I passed called my name.
What was wrong with me I wondered? I had eaten a meal already.
I realized I was looking for something to satisfy me. And I wanted it NOW.
Instant gratification. When I was almost home I realized that I was looking
for something that I already had.
I didn’t need comfort food. I had the Comforter.
I decided to use the cravings for food, drink, and other distractions
as a signal that I needed to spend time with HIM.
I began to worship and satisfy the hunger in my spirit.
It took awhile for my spiritual food to process through the rest of my body and soul.
But soon I was content. The Comforter was inside waiting for me to acknowledge Him.
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God (Ps. 42:1NIV).
