As The Deer

He was not at the water.

Instead, he was standing at a large stone where a few spindly branches with bright green leaves were growing.

Leaves are good food and they do have moisture inside, but leaves are not water.

Not an endless, flowing stream.

Although I didn’t see it, I am sure he looked for water when he was thirsty and found it.

Deep within us is a longing to connect with God, our Father.

We are thirsty for that connection as a deer is thirsty for water.

As the deer pants for streams of water,
    so my soul pants for you, my God.
