I recently was reminding of this song. It suits how I am feeling these days. I would say that living with a spouse with cancer has to be one of life’s hardest trials, but I also have to say that God has been so faithful in His care of us.
Only Jesus can satisfy the deepest spiritual and emotional needs of our hearts. I thank God that I was raised in a Christian home where I heard the gospel and was saved. Without salvation and God helping us through these days, I do not know how I would be coping right now.
All my life I had a longing
For a drink from some clear spring,
That I hoped would quench the burning
Of the thirst I felt within.
Hallelujah! I have found Him
Whom my soul so long has craved!
Jesus satisfies my longings,
Through His blood I now am saved.
Feeding on the husks around me,
Till my strength was almost gone,
Longed my soul for something better,
Only still to hunger on.
Poor I was, and sought for riches,
Something that would satisfy,
But the dust I gathered round me
Only mocked my soul’s sad cry.
Well of water, ever springing,
Bread of life so rich and free,
Untold wealth that never faileth,
My Redeemer is to me.
