I Miss You!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

Pastor Cecil Thompson
Cecil Thompson

Psalm 63:1-2

"O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for You, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory."

Joyce and I have been like hand and glove since we were fourteen. In case you are interested, that is sixty-one years. I think of the times I have been apart from her and our family due to military assignments—I missed them so bad it hurt.

A friend just shared with me that he was talking on the phone with his sweetheart who is many miles away. She mentioned that she missed him but did not miss the Lord so much. He asked her if she was spending time reading the Bible and talking with the Lord. She confessed that she wasn't. He commented; "Well, there is your answer."

After he shared this conversation with me he suggested that I should use this topic for a Daily-E-Votional. This led me to search out today's Scripture. David was in the desert of Judah when he wrote these words. Perhaps you feel like you are in a spiritual desert.

It is always well for us to cry out in longing to the Lord when we experience the desert times of our life. It is important to realize that the Lord is more anxious to come near to us than we are to come near to Him. The parable that Jesus told of the prodigal son reveals that our heavenly Father is always waiting to welcome us back when we make our way back home.

Do you miss Him? If there is a lack of thirst for the presence of the living God in your life, spend time reading and meditating on His Word. Tell Him where you are and how much you miss Him. He is waiting to welcome you home!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
