These days you could say that she has a passion for food.
What do we have passion for? I could easily say I have a passion for food too, and I don't have my friend's beautiful condition as an excuse. I could also admit to having a passion for reading, for gardening, for the latest TV show that has me addicted to its weekly showing. All those things take up my time and a part of my heart. If I really allowed myself true self-inspection I have a feeling I would be more than a little embarrassed. Where is my passion for God? For His words? For His presence?
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matthew 5:6
I remember that feeling, of always being hungry, when I was pregnant with my little girl. My need to eat was a driving instinct to my help child grow and to prepare my body for motherhood.
That is the kind of spiritual hunger our Heavenly Father wants us to have, I'm sure. He wants us to open our Bibles, read his word, and still crave more. He wants us to pray with him, talk with him, and still feel that we could never get enough of His presence in our lives. Because we are ever growing and changing spiritually and the best and only fuel comes straight from our loving Lord.
God, help me grow this passion for you. Let me always to hunger for your goodness and thirst for your peace and guidance.
