Longing for the Divine

Glory Come Down

No story is greater than that of the world becoming God’s tabernacle. It inspires me to draw close to God, who longs for us know Him and to receive His love. Perhaps we don’t feel the glory of God in this world as we should because no one is working to bring Him here.

God’s Heart-Throbbing Desire

Though we cannot fully explain it, we all hunger for connection and a sense of belonging. We all desire intimacy. It is fundamental to who we are. This is why relationships touch us so deeply and why nothing hurts as much as losing love. Perhaps we feel this deep yearning for love because we are made to seek God, who likewise yearns for us. Such desirous love can only be satisfied by being joined in a deeply meaningful relationship. God desires that we draw close, allowing Him to dwell with us, but we give this up for lesser loves. By estranging ourselves from an infinite God and His infinite love, we’ve lost the most important love of all.
