Sacred longing

Longing by John Pickle

Longing. It is an evocative word. And I would assert it is an Advent word. The world is longing, indeed, for the return of Christ. May we have strength enough to wait with godly hope.

When we were given the capacity to love, to speak, to decide, to dream, to hope and create and suffer, we were also given the longing to be known by the One who most wants to be completely known. It is a longing woven into the very fabric of the image in which we were made.
