Excerpt:

1

Restore my soul, O God
Restore my soul, O God—
Breathe life back into my deflated lungs—
Pour water into my tissues, for I am depleted of Your Spirit,
I am dehydrated of the Water of Life.
I am ravenous with hunger, yet I am weak and too weary
to search for food.
Take me by the hand and lead me to Your supply.
I am not asking for manna dropping from the sky—
I’m not asking for streams gushing from a desert rock—
I don’t need a miracle to make me believe—
I know You, Yourself, are the nourishment I need.
Lead me to You, God.
Your Son has already left the pantry door open—
Give me a hand and lead me in that direction.
