Longing

Matthew 13:17 17 Truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.

Have you ever longed for something? A thing? A person? Jesus? That word is so, so deep. Longing. Longing to see, to hear, to know and to be known. The word surfaces, for me, a deep ache. It is something like a pit deep within my being – a sacred hole? – that over a lifetime has sought to be filled. There’s a depth and emptiness at one time…and faith, too. I can’t long for something I don’t believe exists.
