The Hand of God (David Haas)

The hand of God feeds us,
Heals us, the hand of God

All your works praise you
Your faithful ones bless you
Let all proclaim your glory
Your power
Your kingdom


All life comes to you
You feed us in due season
You come with open hands
To feed your creation


You are just in all things,
Loving and holy
You are near to all who call your name
Who cry out in love and truth


The hand of God feeds us, Jesus…

People are hungry (David Whyte)

 This is not 
the age of information. 
This is not  
the age of information. 
Forget the news, 
and the radio, 
and the blurred screen. 
This is the time of loaves 
and fishes. 
People are hungry, 
and one good word is bread 
for a thousand. 

--David Whyte, The House of Belonging

The hungriest for God (John Piper)

   The strongest, most mature Christians I have ever met are the hungriest for God.  It might seem that those who eat most would be least hungry.  But that’s not the way it works with an inexhaustible fountain, and an infinite feast, and a glorious Lord. 
--John Piper, 
A Hunger for God:  
Desiring God through Fasting and Prayer

A hunger that persists (Smith Wigglesworth)

   The secret of spiritual success is a hunger that persists… It is an awful condition to be satisfied with one’s spiritual attainments.  God was and is looking for hungry, thirsty people.
