As the dear panteth for the water
so my soul longeth after thee.
I was not a Christian and when I would hear that song...for lack of a better description....it made my skin crawl. Since becoming a Christian that feeling about it has never really left me entirely....until today. I think that I just never really understood the real meaning of it. This morning I read the verse....I have read it before but generally avoid it....and I get it.
Psalm 42:1-2 NLT
so I long for you, O God.
2 I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I go and stand before him?
I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
