It’s been a hot dry summer for our area and my lawn definitely reflects that. I thought the lawn would also wonderfully reflect these uplifting Bible verses from Psalm 63. I don’t know about you, but I can definitely think of various seasons in my life that have been as dry as dust spiritually as well. Especially when the Sandwich Generation issues keep me too busy to spend much time in His Word. But just as the lawn so desperately needs water to grow, our hearts need the living water of God’s Word to grow. So even when it’s difficult, we can join with the psalmist and say…
O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips will praise You. So I will bless You as long as I live.
A rich passage for Sandwich Generation caregivers to meditate on and pray over. It’s also a blessing to share with our grandchildren.
Hi Kaye! Thanks for sharing these great and rich words… I’m not a sandwich generationer, but can certainly relate to thirsting for the Lord.
Thanks for providing Scripture to quench my thirst today!
I’m thankful we can cry out to God even in the dry seasons.
Just wanted to let you know that BOTH of my parents recently died. My sweet daddy died on his 90th birthday, May 8th. My mother died June 13th. Both of them were able to die at home which was what they wanted. You can scroll through several posts to find out how each happened. Now I begin the process of the estate stuff. Sigh. Thanks for all of your prayers while I was caring for them.
Good morning, Kaye!
Your photo sure is a perfect one to illustrate this Scripture. I know it will come to mind each time my feet crunch through my own dry lawn or pull the hose across the parched and browning grass.
Thank you for linking to Think on These Things!
oh yes, how our souls indeed thirst for the Living Water. our flesh in a constant state of yearning for Him. i just wrote about this very same idea!
thanks so much for sharing this Life-giving gulp of Truth, kaye!
