Longing

"As the deer longs for streams of water,
so my soul longs for you, O God." (Psalm 42:2)

As I begin Advent this year, I am mindful of the longing I have for God.  Sometimes I find myself confused and longing for other things, like a grandchild, or a puppy, or a trip to Rome, but essentially, I am just marking time or filling the void.  What my heart really longs for is God's perfect love.  If I just reach out to Him in prayer, I already have that.

My soul longs for You, O God.
