Lord I crawled across the barrenness to you with my empty cup
uncertain in asking any small drop of refreshment.
If only I had known You better I’d have come running with a bucket.
~ Nancy Spiegelberg
I encountered this quote this week. We were discussing being spiritually dry – barren like the desert.
I haven’t been able to shake the goodness ever since.
Consider how we shortchange God by imagining …
He is stingy
He is far
He is unsympathetic
He is disinterested
He is busy
He is Lavish
He is nearer than my next breath
He feels with us and came into humanity for each of us
He created the macro and microcosms and sustains it all
He has nothing but time and love.
Let’s come running with our buckets.
