not so familiar scripture

some scripture that has been rocking my world:

Matthew 5:6
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied

Psalm 63:1
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

Philippians 3:10-11
that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

Colossians 3:2
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Psalm 73:25-28
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;
you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you.
But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord GOD my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

so familiar, yet may it not grow common in me. may Christ and His love and His Word be renewed daily.

Thank you thank you thank you for posting these. I needed that SO bad! The encouragement is SO appreciated Cindy. I've heard those a thousand times, but still get so much peace knowing that the Lord is my rock and my fortress! May we never forget that!

I have been thinking lately about how I so often become lacksadaisical in my pursuit of the Lord... and yet his love for me remains the same.
I can only pray that I come to this place of hungering for Him more than any other part of life. It is not something I can create on my own.
How humbling, challenging, yet comforting is that.
