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,
