Don’t deny your anger. Don’t dismiss your loneliness. Your restless spirit, your sense of dread. Don’t let your heart shrink into a raisin. Hydrate your soul. Heed that thirst!
Not everything you put to your lips will help your thirst. The arms of forbidden love may satisfy for a time, but only for a time. Eighty-hour workweeks grant a sense of fulfillment, but they never remove the thirst. Religion pacifies but never satisfies. Church activities may hide a thirst, but only Christ quenches it. Drink him, and drink him often.
Don’t you need regular sips from God’s reservoir? I do. I step to the underground spring of God and receive anew his work for my sin and death, the energy of his Spirit, his lordship, and his love. His unending, unfailing love. Drink deeply—and drink often!
