Hungry


As I sit here in my quiet spot, listening to the rain falling softly outside my bedroom window, I hunger for more of Jesus. I struggle to stay focused on my Bible reading. My thoughts run astray on events of the past few days, concerns for the future. But I feel an intense desire for connection. I often try to quench that desire through Facebook, text messages, and TV. But what my heart really desires is a connection with the Lord.

Why am I so quick to seek connection everywhere except where it can truly be found? I think I'll just sit here and watch the curtains blow and listen to the rain. Feeling like the presence of the Lord is in the rain this morning.

About Me

My photo
I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother raising her granddaughter. I am blessed with incredible family and friends. I love working for my church and serving on our Women's Ministry Team. I especially want to reach the women who wear their "Everything's fine" smiles on Sunday, but go home to deal with tough real-life issues throughout the week.
