The first line of Psalm 23 reads, "The Lord is my
shepherd, I shall not want."(lack) But, I feel the
lack of so many things. Little foxes of discontent
ruin my joy. Deep desire really has nothing to
do with things or circumstances. It has everything
to do with fundamental needs that God built into
me from the very beginning: I have a need for
love, security, value and worth, acceptance and
adequacy. Just like I cannot find the treasure of
wisdom in a quarry, I cannot find rest for my soul
in my relationships. Empty people cannot fill my
love tank!

I will visit this verse again tomorrow. It has been
water to my thirsty soul over the past week.
