O GOD, THOU ART MY GOD
Celebrations and praise are such joyous occasions and events that occur throughout various points in our lives even day to day. In this instance, there is great celebration occurring simply for being able to put one's faith into someone else's hands.
To have a "longing" and "thirst" for anything in our life is significant because it tells us we are alive and in pursuit of goals, dreams, understanding, etc. For this particular Psalm (62), our souls thirsting for faith while we are in the "desert". We have found an everlasting source that quenches our desires and forever shall we celebrate and praise that.
