Hunger & Thirst for You

You have been thirsty and nothing on earth would quench the thirst . . .
You have hungered and been hungry and nothing would satiate (satisfy) your appetite . . .
because what you really hunger and thirst for is righteousness (Matthew 5:6)
I AM your righteousness
I AM the bread of life
Eat of me and be filled
Do the will of my Father - this is how you will be filled and satisfied beyond any earthly feeling of fullness
Drink of me - my suffering . . . and my living water
It quenches the deepest thirst of your soul . . .
How I long to dwell in you
To have a place of habitation
A place I call 'home'
Taste and see that I, the Lord, am good (Psalm 34:8)

What are you thirsty for? What are you painfully conscious of your need for things by which the soul is refreshed, supported and strengthened? "The Holy Spirit and the bride (church) say Come! Let everyone come who is thirsty (painfully conscious of his need of those things by which the soul is refreshed, supported and strengthened). Whoever earnestly desires to do it, let him come and take and drink (appropriate) the Water of Life without cost." Revelation 22:17 AMP
In John 4, Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well. He tells here that whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst. Indeed the water I give will become to him/her a spring of water welling up to eternal life. He is saying, in essence, that if you're thirsty (not satisfied), you're not drinking from the right well (source).
