I am hungry!

In the last half hour or so, I have been sitting here at my desk just absolutely electrified. I have never had as strong a craving for God's Word as I do right at this moment. It is not motivated by comparison to anyone else, nor by trying to impress anyone. They are pure, these intense pangs of hunger for Truth. I want to read the Bible cover to cover. I want to read commentaries. I am hungry! I want to read book after book of doctrine and theology and ancient language and interpretation and inspiring words and instruction. I want to learn the original Hebrew and Greek and Aramaic. I want to learn how to effectively reflect God's love to my world. I want to learn how to pray and pray and pray and PRAY without ceasing. I am hungry! I want to learn how to think better! I want to learn how to speak better! I want to learn how to write better! I want to learn how to express my devotion and joy and heartache and despair artistically, and learn how the greatest artists have done it in the past. I am starving! I want to learn music, and how to play instruments, and how to craft songs. I want to dance before the Lord, with graceful movements and groanings of praise and adoration for my King! I am hungry!

Hooray! Let's dance, and then sing, and then dance, and then paint...all for God.
