"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." Matthew 5:6
A few years ago, a young marine corporal named Joey Mora was standing on a platform of an aircraft carrier that was patrolling the Iranian Sea.
Incredibly, he fell overboard His absence was not known for 36 hours.
A search and rescue mission began, but was given up on after an additional 24 hours.
No one could survive in the sea without even a life jacket after 60 hours.
His parents were notified that he was "missing and presumed dead."
The rest of the story is one of those "truth is stranger than fiction" events.
Scriptwriters would pass it up as "not believable."
Four Pakistani fishermen found Joey Mora about 72 hours after he had fallen from the aircraft carrier.
He was treading water, clinging to a makeshift flotation device made from his trousers a skill learned in most military courses on survival training.
He was delirious when they pulled him into their fishing boat. His tongue was dry and cracked and his throat parched.
Just about two years later, as he spoke on NBC News, he recounted an unbelievable story .of a WILL to live.
He said it was God .... It was God....who kept him struggling to survive.
His discovery by the fishermen makes searching for a needle in a haystack a piece of cake.
Joey said that the one thought that took over his body and pounded in his brain was, "Water!.... Water!"
Have you ever been thirsty like that?
Jesus said that when you have a craving like that in your spirit, He will come an fill it!
What will you crave today?
