This word seems so familiar… I think everyone can identify. So much pain goes on—so many people I wish I could hold and heal…

But for me personally, what is this ache I’m feeling? I described an ache within my soul over the past few weeks in my journal.

It’s the ache to know God.

This yearning, this ache, this longing…this hunger to know God. How could it even be possible for us to know God? Just that fact overwhelms me. We serve an awesome God that is knowable.

Ah Lord, cause me to know You! Draw me near to Yourself, and fill this ache within my heart.

This aching for You.


Still not much for 5 minutes…: ) There’s just so much for me to think about there, that I can hardly write.

Have a lovely weekend, friend, and may you grow in Him.

In Christ,

  1. I think it is interesting how “ache” strikes me initially as a sad word, but many of the aches in life are good aches. Like the ache to know God more.

    I love you, dear–thanks for writing this. 🙂

  2. I think the ache to know God is an important discipleship tool. So many aches in our lives can really be traced back to this one and I love that he’s answered it with his Word, his Son and his Spirit. Great thoughts on ache!
