Have you ever had a "mad" craving? What I mean by that is, have you ever wanted something so bad that you could taste it? Right now in the upstate of South Carolina where I live, strawberries are getting ripe. For me, that means homemade cobblers and cakes are around the corner, or at least I hope so. I can almost smell them cooking!!! I have a dear friend who "craves" coffee to the point that he plans his trips around Starbucks! In Psalms 63:1, David tells us of his craving. He says, "My soul thirts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water." Wow! Now that is a craving. As I read that this morning, I realize that I am lacking something in my own craving for God. You see, I desperately want it to be just like how David describes it. I want the longing and the passion. There is a sense of desperation in David's voice. He says to God, "I long for You." How long has it been since we "longed" for God. As I said, I have a friend that plans trip routes around Starbucks because he knows that every so often he can get his "fix." Shouldn't we plan our day around our times with God? Shouldn't we perhaps plan our times with God more intentionally instead of just whatever whenever? I pray that each of us get this kind of "craving" for God. The kind that causes to pursue Him with a wreckless abandon. God bless.
