If I find in myself a desire
which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation is that I was made
for another world.
I am so ready for that other world.
Some days my heart aches with the desire to be
With Him over anything this world can offer.
I know that sounds strange to some.
And I’m not really sure how to explain it.
It’s not escapism… as has been suggested.
I know I wasn’t made for this world.
I have always felt something is missing.
Something. isn’t. right.
I don’t yearn for possessions;
I’ve had my fill of those,
Purging to live more simply.
I don’t yearn for success;
The little I’ve had only left me completely insecure,
Realizing I’ll never be enough.
Maybe… I yearn… for relationship.
I think that’s it.
But, not anything of this world.
I have had many human relationships.
And still enjoy some… but…
I believe I was created for perfect relationship.
I believe I was created for a relationship with One
Who will never leave me.
One who will never forsake.
One who will love me no matter how weird I get.
No matter how messy I am.
I yearn for One who is greater than any I’ve experienced on this earth.
I desire to be found in Him.
I crave The Holy Other.
The Holy Experience.
