longing

This morning in church we talked about longing…how we long for a savior, how in everyone there is this longing for something more than whatever we can find here on earth. Even though I know Jesus, and I know there is more out there than him, I still long for more. I still long for this to be right with the world. And because I live here on earth and I am sinner, I find myself longing for things that will not ultimately satisfy me. I long for things that I believe will make my life more complete.

Just thinking about longing sends me straight to the feet of the Lord, because I know these things are not bad, but distract me from what it means to long for only Him. Those things, will only leave me empty and craving more. He can give me more.

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.” – C.S. Lewis
