Desert Thirst for God

Psalm 63
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah. 
You, God, are my God, 
earnestly I seek you; 
I thirst for you, 
my whole being longs for you, 
in a dry and parched land 
where there is no water. (NIV)

My experience is that its mainly when I'm in wilderness experiences that I thirst for God with my whole being. It's when I feel utterly helpless and hurt that I earnestly seek God.
I hate the desert experience, but I also know that without it, I just don't seek God as I should.
