My soul is thirsting for You, O Lord my God!

My soul is thirsting for You, O Lord my God!

Posted on : November 10, 2023

“O God, You are my God whom I seek; for You my flesh pines and my soul thirsts like the earth, parched, lifeless and without water.”
Whether we know it or not, we thirst for God. We need time with Jesus so He can transform us and make us whole again. Time spent with Jesus can conquer the darkness of our hearts with the brightness of His love. He can truly lift us up! As we continue to journey in this year of the Eucharist, I am excited to share with you exciting opportunities centered on the Eucharist that will quench the thirst of God within you…
