Starving, weak, and praying

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts."
-Isaiah 55:8-9

It occurs to me when reading this -- and bear with me -- this is pretty rudimentary... My thoughts are not his. Neither are my ways.

His thoughts are, in fact, higher than mine. And so are his ways.

I realize that my highest thoughts are often self serving vanity. The few times that I have better thoughts than these are mostly during prayer.

I realize that my highest ways are generally depending on my own strength. The only time I do better are when I'm physically unable to depend on myself and find myself depending on Him.

So pretty much if I was starving, weak, and praying... that is the most I can possibly aspire to be.
