Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”  John 6

What am I am hungry for? Better put, who do I long for? Jesus desires to be desired. A simple nod, a quiet request, the opening of our hearts allows him to feed us and fill us.

As one of the senior monks likes to say, "The Lord has really big shoes, like Mickey Mouse. All He needs is for the door of our heart to be slightly ajar, and He'll nudge the door open with His foot and barge right in!"
