What do you crave?.............

Hunger?  Is it good or bad?............................It depends on what you are hungering for, right.  The bible says that "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled."  I wonder if there is anybody reading this who feels "empty" right now?  I wonder...............

There are many appetites of the world, are there not?  Many different appeals to our pallets.  The question is, how do we develop an appetite for "righteousness"?  For many of us it's already there, we just need to feed it so it can grow.  For others, who don't have that "acquired taste" for righteousness yet, all you need is for someone to give you a little taste of the Lord and you will see that He is good, and you'll want more.  All you need is a taste, to begin to develop and appetite for righteousness.  The bible says "Taste and see that the Lord is good".  The question I asked today is "How do I grow my hunger and thirst for God?.  I can't help but believe that it is by pursuing those things that leave you wanting more time with God.   There are activities in one's life that will feed a hunger and thirst for God, now those "activities" are different for each individual.  I would dare you, if you know what those things are for yourself,  to pursue more of those things to grow your appetite for God.  The bible says that if you want to feel "full", in your life, to hunger and thirst for righteousness.  I will be the first to confess, that I have been scared to pursue more of what feeds my hunger for God, because it's almost like it would be too good to be true, too much of a good thing you know.  We live in a skeptical culture, we tend to deny ourselves the very things that God wants us to indulge in the most.  The reason that I used the word "dare",when I said "I dare you to pursue those things" that feed your appetite for God", is because it is a daring thing, the reason why it is a daring thing, is because we don't know what will happen if we really taste the goodness of God, I mean really taste it, what will happen if we really start feeding our Godly appetites?  Where will it take us?  Where will this take us?  I believe that question has held me back.  Has it held you back?  If you're like me, you run on empty then full.........empty then full.  Your tank never stays full and the more you fill it up, the bigger the "emptiness gets when you hit empty again".  What happens is, that when we grow our appetite for God, and we don't keep the nourishment up with the pace in which our appetite is growing, the empty times get more and more difficult, placing a demand on us by our spirit to "stay filled".  I don't fault myself or others for this yoyo affect in our lives, because it is just part of the process of the Holy Spirit, to get you to a point where you are consistently filled
