I saw a thirsty deer…

Dear Lord of all Creation, like the thirsty deer I watched drink from the stock tank in the middle of the drought, so my soul is thirsty after You, O God. I long to sit at Your feet. I long for the day when I can do it in Your presence, Father. I pour out my soul with the voice of joy and thanks,

Sometimes my soul is cast down, and it seems as if you are unhappy with me. Yet my hope is in You, Father. I thank You for your sure and present help.  

I need You, Lord, now more than ever. I long for Your peace to quiet my soul and stop my tears from flowing. I need to feel Your embrace in my life. Help me to keep my eyes fixed on You throughout my trials and tribulations. I know You’ll never abandon me, and I will keep my faith in You, even as I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
