Thirsty

Ok, so here's the deal. Life's been pretty busy lately, but it's mostly a good kind of busy. I'm enjoying this blog thing even if I only get to check or post like once a week. I feel like I get to communicate with my friends, albeit "virtual" friends. Most of the blogs I read are much deeper than mine will ever be, and maybe that's good. The meat of my life is pretty serious and down to earth. My studies to this point have been very, well, academic, and so I guess when I post I'm looking to let loose, in a computer geek sort of way. Woo-hoo, watch me go!
Ok, but really though, life's good. My mom and I have been having some really meaningful conversations about what it means to be a Christian, so I'm excited about that. In my friends world, I'm finally breaking through that glass and getting to the heart of who my friends really are, both in Christ and in their mind. It's awesome, and I think people are most lovable when they're vulnerable, so I should try that more.
The title, "Thirsty," makes reference to the fact that I've really been drinking up everything in my life right now. From exercise to good food, from my down time and alone time with God to my time with friends, I'm really drinking it in. It's almost like just when I'm dying for alone time, I get it and revel in it, the whole drinking coffee, listening to Sade renditions on 90.9 while I pretend to budget my money, but actually become an online social butterfly. Likewise, when budgeting and eating out gets old, I'm so ready for time in the Word. I'm trying not to be so regimented in my relationship with God. Even though carved out time is good, I want there to be some genuine desire to be with my heavenly Father, and I believe He honors that.
I'll be honest, the only thing I'm not thirsty for lately is getting up every morning to go to work. This usually happens about this time every year. I feel the holidays coming, and all I want to do is wake up when I want, read until I'm hungry, drink coffee, and go shopping. Yep, I love shopping (yeah, I said it). I had to show some major restraint in Foley's today with the new winter clothes coming out. Mmm-hmmm. Cafe mocha, a good book, and a fresh sweata'. Oh yeah. Thirsty is good. I believe we were created for desire, and God is the satisfaction. Drink it in! Josh-wa

"Cafe mocha, a good book, and a fresh sweata'. Oh yeah"

that is hilarious. :)

your thoughts remind me of the quote "God is most glorified when we are most satisfied in Him." that is great when our desire for Him is so fresh and not simply mechanical.
