THE WORLD ABOUNDS WITH IDOLS—things you turn to when you want to feel better about yourself: eating, entertainment, exercise, mastery of something or someone. However, none of these things can slake the thirst of your soul, which yearns for Me alone. When you get that gnawing sensation around the edges of your soul, return to Me—your soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods.
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you . . . I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. —PSALM 63:1–5

Before You Turn Out the Light Retreat into My loving Presence while I refocus your thoughts and feelings on Me.
