My Soul Thirsts for You

One Saturday night, I was just lying in bed inviting God to come and fill my room with His presence. I began to sing a song, “As the deer panteth for the brooks, so does my soul longeth after thee.” It’s such an old hymn, one I haven’t heard in ages, but it was one that was my prayer that Saturday night. I want my soul to not wonder off but long for more of Jesus. I casually thought in my head, “Lord, if they sing this song tomorrow at Church, I know You are with me.” I don’t even know why I thought that but I did, and I almost forgot.

The next morning was Sunday. Church was about to begin and I sat down for prayer service which lasts one hour before the actual service begins.

Someone started strumming the guitar softly to start the service. As I bowed my head to pray, he began to sing a song. It was the same song I was singing the night before. I lifted my head in amazement. Out of the thousands of songs there are, and mostly being Thai songs that adds even more songs to their list, he sang that one.

Tears started streaming down my face. Even though it’s something so small, so simple, it’s just a song, a little cry from my heart, God heard it. I’m so thankful for the little things and the biggest thing of all – Jesus never leaving me.

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” Psalm 42:1-2

  1. When God does things like this, as he did for you, it causes our faith and trust to grow. It helps us to believe for even greater things as needed. And it reminds us that He is true to his Word. He said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”. We serve such an amazing God who hears the cry of our ❤️’s, and responds to that cry. Beautiful! You are surrounded at all times by his love and his angels.
