Hungry and thirsty, their life was wasting away within them. They cried to the Lord in their distress; from their straits he rescued them.
Jesus said that He is the vine and we are the branches. When we sever our connection to the Giver of Life we wither. Of course…we can never actually sever our connection with God…but we can choose to ignore it. Staying in conscious connection with the living Christ is essential through practices of being present to the Presence of God, the reading of scripture and silent reflection and contemplation. If we do this we will begin to be aware of promptings from God on decisions in life. At one time…I was “hungry and thirsty” with my life seemingly “wasting away” within me. I did cry out to the God in my distress…and as I look back now…I clearly see how God rescued me (and many times since!). Have faith and trust that God will lead you to wholeness. God is always good even when we or life’s happenings are not!
