Holy Longing

Psalm 42:2-3
As the deer longs for streams of water, so my soul longs for you, O God. My being thirsts for God, the living God.

Each of us has a deep yearning inside…a yearning that longs to be satisfied. Why do we often try to numb that yearning, cover it up, or try to satisfy it with material or physical things? The yearning is on the “soul” level. It’s a spiritual longing. The deepest part of you…is yearning for God. It’s a yearning only God can satisfy. How do you experience God? Is it in music, silence, art, nature or something else? Maybe all of those! Seek God in all those places and allow your Loving Creator to nourish you. God yearns to do just that. It’s the path to wholeness and your true self.
