My Soul Pants for You


Photobucket

Nothing..no one can satisfy our soul except the Lord!  My husband and I love singing the song, "As the Deer" (words & music by Martin Nystrom) while he plays the piano.  "As the deer panteth for the water, so my soul longeth after Thee.  You alone are my heart's desire, and I long to worship Thee."  That's how I feel.  We are created to glorify and worship Him.  May we have an unceasing desire to know Him more, to love Him more, and to be filled with more of Him!

"Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God." Psalm 42:6
"By day the Lord directs His love, at night His song is with me--a prayer to the God of my life." Psalm 42:8

Sweet blessings and how beautiful this precious deer...one of my favorite songs and Psalm 42 is "As the deer panteth..." Your picture is so perfect along the water...so peaceful & stirs up longing in me.

Why don't you & your hubby record you & him? Such a wonderful keepsake!
Humming the song as I go about my day. EnJOY WFW and a week filled by Him and His Word! Keep Living for God!
