He Fills the Hungry

Hunger says I am in need
and that I am in a good place.
He satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things. 
Psalm 107:9
Hunger keeps me in a place where 
I am desperate for food.
It is easy to graze through my days
and lose my hunger, 
especially in these days 
where distractions seem welcome.
I don't want to be sidetracked when I am 
unsure of all the things God is doing
and don't know how to handle all the  
challenges that are in front of me.
God doesn't always tell us what He is doing
because sometimes He is not 
leading us to an answer;
He is leading us to a place-- 
the secret place of His heart.

The mysteries that I carry 
are the motivations that lead me there.
I want to be hungry for Him to fill me.
I want to need Him all day long—
more of Him and His presence in my life, 
I want to trust Him as my answer.

Lord, help me not feed on anything but You 
and the good things You have for me.
You satisfy the thirsty
and fill the hungry with good things.
