O God, you are my God, for you I long

While starting my morning prayer this morning I was really touched once more by Psalm 62:

O God, you are my God, for you I long;
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you
like a dry, weary land without water.
So I gaze on you in the sanctuary
to see your strength and your glory.

For your love is better than life,
my lips will speak your praise.
So I will bless you all my life,
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet,
my mouth shall praise you with joy.

On my bed I remember you.
On you I muse through the night
for your have been my help;
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand holds me fast.


I always feel that this psalm really sums up the yearning of our hearts for God...
... something beyond words!

Also, I would like to wish all the readers of this blog a very joyfull New Year!
