If you get a chance, have a read of Psalm 63. It talks about ‘soul thirsting’…here are the opening words..
‘O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you’…….
We could have an interesting conversation about what the soul is and how each of us would define it. Clearly, for the Psalmist writing a long time ago, the soul is what connects us to God and for me, to my true self. The soul is that part of us that reaches out to the Creator and allows the Holy Spirit to speak into our hearts.
The words of the Psalmist which I’ve highlighted above speak powerfully but gently into my inner being.
How this happens it utterly unique to each of us and that is the encouragement we should hold in our hearts. We can spend our days being distracted by lots of other ‘stuff’, which clogs up our souls and might not be very energising! But the simple invitation of God to us, is to seek. Not shut the door, but to open our hearts and souls.
In your journey today, I pray that your seeking will quench your thirst in a suprising way!!
