yearning.

We all yearn for something to fulfill us.

yearn: have an intense feeling of loss or lack and longing for something.

You know what? We’re all in the same boat. We live in a world that is broken, yet, full of wonderful glimpses of Heaven. You say you are not sure there is a Heaven? Well then, how is it that there is such beauty all around us? From the intricate, invisible structure of the DNA strand to the spectacular, resplendent Milky Way Galaxy, our earthly home speaks of something beyond our understanding.

But is it beyond our understanding? Not really. Because the Creator wired humanity to yearn for him. We can’t help it.

It is really the yearning that is beyond our understanding.  What is this inner desire that coaxes me to look for something or someone to accept me and give me purpose? We may try many experiences to numb the pain,  make us forget, or bring happiness – if just for a moment.

But there is truly only one way to feel complete. And that is open your arms to God.

I’m not talking about religion. I’m talking about you and God.  He is waiting for you. Tell Him you’re ready to meet Him. He’ll take care of the rest.

  1. Kathleen…..You have such a way with words. I just ‘yearn’ to write, not ‘like’ you, but….’Like’ you. You know what I mean. Your writings always bless me, and I’m trusting many others.
