Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?  ~ 1 Cor. 6:19

Thirst: God’s Desire for Me

You thirst for me. Yes, that is the only way to even begin to describe your love for me. You thirst for me. You thirst to love me and to be loved by me — that is how precious I am to you. You thirst for me. I will come to you, and you fill my heart and heal my wounds. You make of me a new creation, and give me peace, even in my trials you thirst for me. I must never doubt your mercy, your acceptance of me, your desire to forgive me, your longing to bless me and live your life in me. You thirst for me. If I feel unimportant in the eyes of the world, that matters not at all. You thirst for me — and you will prove to me how important I am to your Heart.

AMEN

[I thirst]

I thirst for you. Yes, that is the only way to even begin to describe my love for you. I thirst for you. I thirst to love you and to be loved by you — that is how precious you are to me. I thirst for you. Come to Me, and I will fill your heart and heal your wounds. I will make you a new creation, and give you peace, even in all your trials I thirst for you. You must never doubt my mercy, my acceptance of you, my desire to forgive you, my longing to bless you and live my life in you. I thirst for you. If you feel unimportant in the eyes of the world, that matters not at all. For me, there is no one any more important in the entire world than you. I thirst for you. Open to me, come to me, thirst for me, give me your life–and I will prove to you how important you are to my Heart.
