Word-Filled Wednesday - Psalms 42:1

Sponsored by Amydeanne at The 160-Acre Woods, the "purpose of Word-filled Wednesday is to share God’s word through photo’s & a verse!"

During my childhood the entire family loved Bible games. As a teenager I decided to make a card game with Bible texts. The text would appear on 2 or 3 cards that would have a phrase from the text. All 2 or 3 cards would be needed to complete the set. The object of the game was to gather as many cards with complete texts. One of the texts I used was Psalms 42:1

Turkish traditional design from www.Dover.com

"As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So pants my soul for You, O God."

Psalms 42:1

I love the imagery of this text as the psalmist expresses a deepfelt need for God.
Along these lines, the apostle Peter advised the believers to seek spiritual growth.

"As newborn babes,
desire the sincere milk of the word,
that ye may grow thereby"
1Peter 2:2

It is my hope that we may each grow in grace each day and that our soul yearnings will be filled by His power.
