“Blessed Are Those that Hunger & Thirst”

Alyssa Brooks-Dowty | 07.07.2013

 

Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6

God has new soup for you, but you have to pour out your bowl.

Alyssa’s 3 “Made up Spiritual Disciplines:”

1. Discomfort

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of our selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.
C. S. Lewis

2. Proximity

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

3. Struggle

There is no pit so deep, that God’s love is not deeper still. Corrie ten Bloom
