In Touch With Our Longings

April 5, 2017

“God appeals to people to enter into relationship with him on the basis of their longings. Therefore, knowing what our longings are and experiencing them deeply is important. Those who are not in touch with their longings will not be drawn to the source of their satisfaction.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Understanding People, Page 133

Questions for Reflection:
• What longings have you refused to acknowledge, rather than wrestled with, in the presence of God?
• What is lost when you attempt to minimize or manage your inner emptiness rather than dialogue with God about it?
• Take some time today to bring before God any desires that you’ve attempted to shut down or have convinced yourself you shouldn’t feel.
• Wait in His presence and allow Him to meet you with Himself, as only He can.
