Thirsty dropped in my spirit during a season of intense and deep longing for God and I felt like He was going quiet on me.
Nothing I tried shook that feeling until , one morning in the shower when the entire song dropped and I had to jump out to record it on my phone. I hope this song helps someone to focus their longing and thirst on the only One that can satisfy. He is a well that can never run dry.
Special appreciation for my amazing friend and sister Jacy Mai for pouring her heart into this song. Thirsty is available on all digital platforms.
