thirst is our ally

thirst is our ally

When we find ourselves in hard seasons or times of being acutely aware of our weakness, our first instinct is to run, to avoid, to end it as quickly as possible. I’m slowly, slowly learning that if we let it, these seasons can instead be something that presses us nearer to God.

“God calls us to resist succumbing to readily available distractions and instead to press into these thirsty moments, our weakest seasons. Thirst is our ally. We want to be thirsty for God.”

– Sara Hagery, Unseen
