Have you ever felt spiritually hungry?
The past few weeks have been busy with end of the year activities and I feel like I’ve been on overload.
I’m running myself ragged from one thing to the next without taking time to rest in the Lord.
As I read these questions from Dani’s post on spiritual hunger, I realized what I’d been missing.
Am I craving God’s Word like a newborn? I may not be able to read the Bible every hour—the pace at which Amariah feeds—but are verses frequently on my mind?
My answer to her question was no. I hadn’t been feeding on the Word of God. My schedule had been dictated by the busyness around me and once again, I had put my quiet time at the bottom.
It seems to be a constant struggle with me.
Sometimes I place an expectation on what my time should look like and if I know I can’t achieve that, I neglect it altogether.
Feeding on the Word of God
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
I can come as I am, whether I have 30 minutes or 5 minutes. Those precious moments with the Lord can fill me up quicker than anything else.
When I’m feeling overwhelmed, I can come to God and rest in His presence. I can open His Word and be filled with His truth. Praise and Worship can fill my home, providing the peace I need in the midst of a busy season.
