1 God — you're my God!
I can't get enough of you!
I've worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
traveling across dry and weary deserts.
2 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
drinking in your strength and glory.
3 In your generous love I am really living at last!
My lips brim praises like fountains.
4 I bless you every time I take a breath;
My arms wave like banners of praise to you.
5 I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy;
I smack my lips. It's time to shout praises!
6 If I'm sleepless at midnight,
I spend the hours in grateful reflection.
7 Because you've always stood up for me,
I'm free to run and play.
8 I hold on to you for dear life,
and you hold me steady as a post.
God is my God! I can't live without Him. There's just no hope in the world or in the things I do. Traveling across dry and weary deserts stands out a lot to me today. You see my brother was diagnosed with liver cancer. I was told to accept his fate nothing would fix things. What a long weary desert. But I believe in miracles. God created our bodies and He is the Great Physician. So I prayed for a miracle. Yesterday I learned the tumor on his liver has died. They went to do more chemo but there's no more cancer to kill. They are now recommending a surgeon remove part of the liver where the tumor is. I will wait upon God. But this is a miracle only God could do! Even my husband, who works in the medical field, said that when a tumor grows this quickly and then dies it's a miracle. When I read this Psalm this morning I had to smile real big. I am so grateful and have been bubbling over with praise. Yet I know I must wait upon Him. It will be over when He says it's over. Today I will run and play. I will hold onto Him. And continue to spend time in grateful reflection. Thanks Father!
