I'm So Stinkin' Hungry

We all can relate to being hungry or thirsty. It's just one of those things that makes us human, regardless of economic status, age or maturity. 

As a big boy, I have had my fair share of what I call "throw-downs." There is nothing better than sitting at one of those giant picnic tables at a little BBQ shack in Driftwood, TX. It's the best!

In my attempt to pursue Jesus with ALL of my life, I find myself praying for a different type of hunger. Not a hunger that results in a food coma, but a hunger that satisfies my soul, something the perfect plate of brisket and ribs cannot do.

"Lord, give me a hunger for your presence and your Word. Let nothing satisfy this hunger except Your presence."

This summer I turn 34 years old. I believe that my 30's are becoming a decade of change and maturity. It started with being obedient in planting a "different" type of church. As of late, God has been teaching me humility. 

I also have had some physical changes. As I write this, I have lost over 50 lbs in a few months. God's got my attention, and I am so stinkin' hungry for Him. I pray that my family and friends would experience this type of hunger... because He alone truly satisfies.
