Hungry

hungry…

When you try to watch your weight… and maintain a restricted diet… there are times you find yourself hungry…

Hunger usually drives us to fill up… but it seems what I seek to fill… only makes me crave more… and to eat every time hunger makes itself known… leads to feeding the flesh… more… and… more… the opposite of my goal…

So… I’ve decided… it’s OK to be hungry…

Every time I feel hungry I do not have to seek food… it’s OK… to rest in the hunger…

And then I think about spiritual hunger… it’s a good thing…

The more we’re in His Word… in His presence… following… pursuing… the more we want of Him…

Our hunger increases for Him… but this is one place we can’t over-indulge… and hunger for Him simply makes us seek Him more…

It’s a good thing to be spiritually hungry… it’s a good thing to seek to be full… yet we will never be so full of Him… we don’t want Him anymore…

Yes… it’s OK to be hungry… it’s even good… it reminds us of what we need… that we are dependent on fuel… both physically and spiritually…

Filling up with Him… His Spirit… His grace… moves us toward a very good place…

For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things.

Psalm 107:9 ESV
