Long {#Write31Days}

Most of us live our life in a state of longing.
Some people long for love.
Others long for children.
Some long for company,
While others long for solitude.
Some long for work,
Others long for rest.

There is something in everyone’s life,
That they are longing for.
Will bring us to a status
What we long for often is seen
As a void in our life.
We believe once filled
Of contentment.
This is a lie.

We were designed to be content
In every state,
Not just when we fill completed,
We are to be longing for nothing.
When we learn this truth,
We can find joy in all circumstances.

The only thing that will fill the hole
Is Christ.
The interesting thing is,
God is longing for us too.
When we turn our longing to Him,
And it is met with His longing for us
Blessings will flow.

Isaiah 30:18 And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!



About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
