Serene Campbell and Pearl Barrett are musical sisters from New Zealand and California. This duo was formerly known as Serene & Pearl. However, by the mid 1990’s, these women changed their name to Considering Lily. At this same time, I was looking for a different sound, something fresh and new. When you add wholesome lyrics to a distinct sound, I became a big fan of Considering Lily in the late nineties.
Blessed and fortunate and happy and[g]spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God [h]enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be [i]completely satisfied! – Matthew 5:6
Today’s song was inspired by the passage above along with several songs of the past about filling our spiritual cup with living water, John 4:13-15. Like the Samaritan woman in the middle of a desert on a hot summer day, thirst is a natural craving of the human flesh. Yet, when Christians turn their thirst toward righteousness, God has the ability to satisfy your soul. May today’s song touch your heart.
