Ultimate Longing

What do you long for?

To provide for your family? To be remembered for a great achievement? To be the most trusted and respected individual in your ministry?

What do you long for?

As the sun slowly wakes from its slumber and casts a sheet of light across the sleepy ground, do you earnestly desire to see God’s glorious face?

While you lazily sip a steaming mug of Seattle’s Best and catch up on the daily news, are your thoughts instantly directed toward fully knowing the King of the Universe?

In preparation for another day at the office and sifting through unorganized hangers loaded with tailored suits and brand new blouses, do you tell Him you simply crave more moments in His presence?

What do you long for?

While standing squished on the crowded city bus, strangers bumping into you with ever jarring pothole, are you fervently focused on unreservedly loving His people?

As your supervisor continues in pointless chatter, overlooking the time and assigning unexpected projects to be completed before days end, do you call out to Christ and lay your worries on His throne?

Who does your mind dwell on when your spouse misinterprets your gesture and impulsively reacts with cruel remarks?

He asks for love.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” Matthew 22:37

Simple?

Then why do we consistently choose worldly, temporary objects over the most perfect and sustaining love relationship?

Where is your zeal? Your passion?

What do you long for?
