Last week I had someone request several pieces for a VBS theme they are doing. This week I will share them with you. Each one is a verse that includes the word thirst. I am not sure what they are doing with each verse, but they got me thinking about thirsting and wanting.
Oh summer. I don’t know how to deal with you this year! After so many years of being so busy I could barely think, I have hours each day that have no plans. Hours. I don’t know what to do with myself. With all this time on my hands I am thirsting for deeper conversations. Deeper studies. I feel like I am in a parched desert for this kind of interaction. I am not in any classes for school or church. I am not writing any kind of curriculum, speeches, etc. I am not in a book club. I need to get out there and do something!
But so far, I am just standing there like a cactus, reaching out my arms, waiting for someone else to bring what my soul thirsts for. I don’t think that is going to happen. I think I am going to have to make an effort to fix this on my own. Sometimes we have to accept the offers God puts out there…sometimes we have to look for them, or even just recognize them. And then we have to do something with them. I am sure I am surrounded by options. I just need to move toward them.
