"As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually say to me, "Where is your God?" When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast" (Psalms 42:1-4).
Do you remember the days when you worshiped God with your whole heart, confident in knowing where you stood before the Maker and excited to serve Him? You knew where you came from, but what was more important was that you knew where you were going?
I know you've lost your way, but the way of joy can still be found and you can walk on it once again. "The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; he who keeps his way preserves his soul" (Proverbs 16:17).
