So my soul pants for You Lord

I like to read different versions of the same scripture. This sometimes touches my heart and adds a deeper, richer meaning to what has been read. The following MSG version did this and more; it made me smile. 🙂

Psalm 63:1-5 MSG      1 God—you’re my God! I can’t get enough of you! I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God, traveling across dry and weary deserts. 

 2-4 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open, 
      drinking in your strength and glory. 
   In your generous love I am really living at last! 
      My lips brim praises like fountains. 
   I bless you every time I take a breath; 
      My arms wave like banners of praise to you. 

 5 I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy; 
      I smack my lips. It’s time to shout praises! 

It also inspired me to write my own version. Maybe it will inspire you too. Write your own version and share it here – leave it in the comments on this blog for others to enjoy!

Psalm 63:1-5 MY VERSION    1 O GOD, You are MY God,

O Lord, like David,  the ‘one thing’ I seek, to behold the beauty of  Your face!

3 I’ve tasted and seen and I know Your love is better than life! I praise You LORD!

4 I will bless You with my whole being lifting my hands in Your name
