Barbara's Journey Home

My Soul Thirsts for You

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
    my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
    as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
    beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
    my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
    in your name I will lift up my hands.

Way to Grow

By Barbara Heil | August 25, 2014

The need for constant affirmation, even in the Kingdom of God, can become a kind of addiction. The kind that always leaves you wanting more. Jesus has called us to shift our vision outside of ourselves, to follow Him and turn our attention outward. To become the servants rather than the served. To be the…
