More of You

More of You

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."
-Matthew 5:6

It would not be difficult for me to create quite a long list of things I hunger and thirst for.  I am embarrassed to say that righteousness doesn’t naturally trend toward the top of that list.  In my own selfish, self-serving fleshly mode, I will seek a lot of things and experiences more than God.

Fasting reminds me to reorient.  A hunger pang can bring up the question, “why again am I doing this?”  And my heart cries out, “because I want more of, I need more of God!”  Ask yourself that question again today, “Why am I doing this?”

Pray with me. God help me not to fast and pray just because I should or because I was asked to, or for any other lesser reason.  I hunger and thirst so that I might be filled with more of you.
