Early Morning Longing

As I prepare to head to the gym for the first workout of the year, I’m reflecting on Psalm 63:1.

“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.”

In the quiet, stillness of this new morning with the year’s first snow on the ground, I’m aware of a constant in my life. It is not loneliness. It is a persistent ache that refuses to go away, a longing for the kind of love that isn’t earned and can’t be taken away.

As I prepare to leave, the love that I long for calls to me. It beckons me to remember that He longs for me as well.

It is a wonderful moment when you discover, and yes, experience, the truth that God longs for you as much as you long for Him. 

God, in these moments, help me remember that this kind of awareness is constantly available to me. Amen
