Matthew 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
(NIV)


If you have lost this hunger, or you have never had it, then pray today that God would restore that in you. That you might be able to echo the words of King David, when he said, "As the deer pants for the water, so my soul longs after you!"

    Hi Matt

    Got your blog address from Rodney Olsen's "The Journey" blog. Strange how things come around, at 42 years of age I have found myself without any passion...for anything. Rodney wrote that your blog was worth visiting and now I am confronted with your words, I wonder if I had ever had any hunger for righteousness in my long christian life. Thanks for the words, it seams recently that God is putting people and experiences in my life to give me the kick start I need, you blog is certainly one of them :-)

  2. That is so awesome to hear! And this is the exact reason why I am doing this. Because, it is not about my words, it is about the words of God.

    They are the only words that are living and powerful. They are the only words that can pierce you deeply. They are words of change, they are words of life!

    Thankyou for your encouragement!
