You will be like a well-watered garden,
Like a spring whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58:11

The Lord will guide you always;
He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land ….

my body

My soul thirsts for You,
My body longs for You… 
Psalm 63:1
 
 
O God, you are my God,
       earnestly I seek you;
       my soul thirsts for you,
       my body longs for you,
       in a dry and weary land
       where there is no water.
 
I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and glory.
 
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
 
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my hands.
 
My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
 
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the night.
 
Because you are my helper,
I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.
 
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
 
Psalm 63:1-8
 
 
A favorite from the book of Psalms.
A combination of the NIV and the NLT translations.
