Your Deepest Longing...


What's your deepest longing? Is it fulfilled? Are you truly content and satisfied? Perhaps you have everything you want... But you still want for more... You do don't you? You still long for something... more... A job, a relationship, a child, a home, money, a favorite thing that you've always wanted.

"We poor human creatures are constantly being frustrated by limitations imposed upon us from without and within. The days of the years of our lives are few and swift. Life is a short and fevered rehearsal for a concert we cannot stay to give. Just when we appear to have attained some proficiency we are forced to lay our instruments down. There is simply not enough time to think, to become, to perform what the constitution of our natures indicates we are capable of. So we long for more..." ~A.W. Tozer

More than anything you long to be loved I'm sure because we all do. It's how we're built. Even the toughest warrior and the most independent recluse of a person longs to be loved, to belong, to be complete.

Of all the things in life we strive to attain, this is our deepest longing. Not the dream job, or dream house, or dream girl or guy or the dream body or the big paycheck. Yes all those things bring a certain pleasure and comfort but they are fleeting and leave us wanting because they lack the power to complete us. Some have had what they thought was their "dream" only to realize later it did not completely satisfy and even more it let them down, hurt them and left them wanting and jaded.

The things of this world are temporary not eternal so they can never totally satisfy us. Thus there should be something more, something eternal that we invest ourselves in to ensure that our peace, purpose, fulfillment and love remain.

There is a love that is measureless and totally completes us. It is the "more" you're looking for: it is boundless love. It has no bounds because it is not a thing but a facet of the essential nature of Who it is and it is God. God is love. The pure embodiment of all expression of love is God. His love is something He is, and because He is infinite that love can enfold the whole created world in itself and have room for ten thousand times ten thousand worlds beside.

Some have diluted themselves to think they don't need God or they don't believe God so they just dismiss and suppress their natural God given longing for purpose and significance and love.

We all have it, that constant feeling that there is something more to this life than what's before me.

Gods love is the only thing that can fulfill and complete and satisfy our deepest longings regardless our circumstances of abundance or lack.

"How completely satisfying to turn from our limitations to a God who has none. Taste and see that the Lord is good and completes you like none other. It's a promise you can stake your life on." ~ Tozer
