yet, for now, our hearts are not very fervent.

i thought this was rather cool, as i have some friends who are going through a spritiual ‘dry season’ of sorts:

“having tasted the feast before, we recall the goodness of the Lord – but it seems far off. We preach to our souls not to be down cast, because we are sure we shall again praise the Lord (Psalm 42:5). Yet, for now, our hearts are not very fervent.

even though this falls short of the ideal vigorous, heartfelt adoration and hope, yet it is a great honor to God. We honor the water from a mountain spring not only by the satisfied ‘ahhh’ after drinking our fill, but also by the unquenched longing to be satisfied while still climbing to it.”

– John Piper :: Desiring God

keep on keeping on.

love.
