As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. – Psalm 41:1 NKJV
I recently spent some time in Yellowstone with my family, and it was amazing to see the wildlife there, especially the buffalo and elk. With the geysers in Yellowstone, I wonder if the wildlife there pant for the water in the same way, or if they know better than to go close to the scalding water. During previous visits to Yellowstone, I barely saw any wildlife, so I was excited to see a buffalo closer than I expected. I kept my safe distance, of course.
When we look forward to our prayer time with the Lord, He blesses us more than we can ask or think. Prayer is not merely something we do before dinnertime. It is a source of comfort at any part of the day. The Lord hears our prayers. If we tune into His voice, we can follow the path he lays out for us and find peace. Amen.
