My 40 Days of Intention Experiment: Sunday 4

My intention today is to spend time in preparing my week:  paper work, menus and calendar.

My time on Sundays, after worship, is spent on relaxation, time with Nick and planning for the week.  Today is no different.

In church today we heard the story of the Prodigal Son as read in from the scriptures and in a dramatic monologue.  There are so many ways to hear the Good News.  The stories and parables never grow old.

But, do you ever wish for more?  Are there times when you “hunger” for more? This is part of the question posed today in our study.

My question is am I hungry enough?

No, I don’t mean for bread, fruit, vegetables or meat. bread in a basket

The hunger that I wonder about, the deep down thirst for knowledge; to learn more of God’s love and my purpose in life, that’s what what’s in my head today.

How can I know what my purpose is if I don’t hunger for the knowledge or study the scriptures?

I want to know more.  I want to feel more.  I want to live more.

That’s a lot of ‘I’s”.  God has given me the desire to dive deeper; to search further.

Am I up to the challenge?

This is my prayer today.

God I come hungry and thirsting for more of you; for more of what you have around the corner in my life.  Help me in this journey of self-discovery.  Help me to find your purpose in my life today and every day.  Amen.

Is this something you pray for?

What are you hungry for today?

I share an older Hymn with you on this day filled with moments rich in learning as we dive deeper:

  1. Slowing winding down a really great weekend.
    Have a great week everyone!

  2. HUNGER is a very STRONG DRIVE.

  3. The older I become, the deeper my hunger for the Holy seems to go. It peels somewhat like an onion: just when I ‘feel’ hunger satisfied, that layer disappears and that loving invitational Hunger smiles back at me. And I give thanks.
