There is a lot to know about the Bible, and they are good things to know. But the Holy Spirit brings God’s word and God’s world to life in ways that can’t be known only through objective trivia.
I wish I had kept Psalm 102 at the ready for such a time as this. This psalm voices deep anguish of the body and the spirit, something to which we can all relate in ways big or small.
We will all find ourselves in the position of the psalmist at some point: desperately thirsty, cut off from the source of life. Each of us will come to a place of feeling lost, of feeling far from the Lord.
