I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. You know that verse in Psalm 42, as the deer panteth for the water, so my soul longs for Thee o, God... And during a hot summer days, you know what it means to be thirsty, right? When the sun gets hot and the humidity rises, there's nothing that quenches my thirst like a cool, tall glass of freshly brewed ice tea— not the stuff from a can— no, I'm talking about the real thing. Only the real thing can satisfy and quench the thirst. Psalm 107 says, For God has satisfied the thirsty soul and the hungry soul, He has filled with what is good. We’re so prone to let our hearts wander and fill the void with all sorts of substitutes. We fill our schedules with things we think will satisfy, but nothing quenches the thirsty soul like the real thing: Jesus. Jesus is living water. And Jesus satisfies like nothing else.
