Thirsty?

image

A white-tailed deer drinks
from the creek;
I want to drink God,
deep draughts of God.
I’m thirsty for God-alive.
I wonder, “Will I ever make it—
arrive and drink in God’s presence?”

*
I’m on a diet of tears—
tears for breakfast, tears for supper.
All day long
people knock at my door,
Pestering,
“Where is this God of yours?”

*

These are the things I go over and over,
emptying out the pockets of my life.
I was always at the head of the worshiping crowd,
right out in front,
Leading them all,
eager to arrive and worship,
Shouting praises, singing thanksgiving—
celebrating, all of us, God’s feast!

*

Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
He’s my God.

(Psalm 42:1-5 MSG)

  1. Blessings Diana,
    This is a very deep and moving poem. The Lord is shining through you in a great way. Hallelujah! This is truly awesome to see, truly heart touching. I can identify with you, I can’t even put to words how much I love the Lord. I guess my greatest gift would be the voice God gave me for singing, When I sing I just feel so free inside, it’s like just me and God and I don’t even notice other people around me. I just thank the Lord from the depths of my heart. Hope all is well with you and yours today. Your poem kind of reminds me of the song as the deer panteth for the water:) God bless you Diana.

    • Thank you brother, but I cannot take the credit for this. It’s from THE MESSAGE BIBLE. I like to read from different versions to help me understand.

      Singing – love your picture of freedom. I can relate to that one. There are times where we just sing in the Spirit and we just aren’t here on Earth anymore. I love that place.

      You are prophetic my friend, that song AS THE DEER is on our list for songs on Sunday Worship! Thank you for the Rhema Word for me today, I was looking for an answer about singing…

      God bless you too,
      Diana
