The Blessing in Hunger: Faith for Creatives by Briana Lassiter

*Originally Published June 23, 2019

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.” ~MATTHEW 5:6 NKJV

Do you find yourself bursting with questions, hard questions about God, about life, about purpose, about what is right and true?

A lot of times we might feel discouraged while we wait for God to answer our hard questions, and yet here is our Savior saying, you are blessed for your hunger. And your hunger will be satisfied. Your questions will be answered.

If you find yourself hungering after answers you have not received yet about who you are, who God is, or what your purpose is, you are blessed, and you can trust that He is building in you even now, the answers, and even now you are blessed to receive and know the truth of everything you’re hungry for.

There may be a process to receiving, but you will still receive.

He is a faithful God and He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it even until the day of Christ, so rest in the promise and rest in the blessing today.

~Poiema, Poetry in Motion

Bri Small headshotI’m married to my dearest friend of 8 years and mom to an energetic 6-year-old. My greatest joys come from traveling with my little family, cooking for appreciative recipients, learning herbalism and natural medicine, and every experience I get to have in prayer ministry. I’m an avid tea and book lover and can’t get enough of either. I love Jesus and the daily adventure that comes from walking in friendship with him as he arranges and rearranges my story.
