C.S. Lewis defined a thirst for God as, "lacking an encounter with God, their souls are parched like a waterless countryside." We must look beyond our circumstances and see only God. It is then, and only then that we will experience the totality of satisfaction. One must remember, however, that it is not the one encounter that brings total satisfaction, for it only quenches the thirst temporarily, but it is a daily encounter with God that totally quenches the thirst.
This is the central point to my message tomorrow night, and I pray that it touches someone's life as it has mine.
