Monday, Third Week of Lent

As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. Psalm 42:1

When we are unhappy and nothing seems to satisfy us, how we tend to buy, or do things, that try to fill a void. When we pray, or visit a Church, we find that void filling up, but we often do not recognize it is Jesus and the Holy Spirit who are filling up that void. How we tend to not notice the closeness we just reached for. Again, we go off in search for the stream that will fill our thirst, looking but not finding. Until one day when we enter into the house of the Lord and lay our prayers at his feet will we find it is there that we find the thirst quenching water.
