It’s Friday which means I am joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Many of us writing on that same word.
Today’s prompt is … Crave.
The prompt brought a smile to my face. This time of year, my cravings are pretty much the same as every year. If you know me even so slightly, you know my favorite cravings, during the Christmas season, are gingerbread cookies and homemade caramel popcorn. Hence, my husband already came home from work with a shopping bag of this …
And that is so it .. our souls crave. There is something about the wait of the month of December which reminds us of our cravings.
Cravings – it is what we long for, desire, and deeply yearn.
The funny thing about our cravings is that we think they are what we need more than anything else. We come to understand they only temporarily fill or satisfy us and we will only crave, yet once more.
This Advent season, I am craving more – more of Jesus and what He has for me. With intent and focus, there is a renewed anticipation and expectation as the wait continues.
There is no doubt He will bring satisfaction and good things.
He has promised!
“For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”
(Psalm 107:9, NLT)
