“The whole life of the good Christian is a holy longing. What you desire ardently, as yet you do not see…by withholding of the vision, God extends the longing, through longing he extends the soul, by extending he makes room in it. Let us long because we are to be filled…that is our life, to be exercised by longing. ”
~ St. Augustine
LORD__YES, THERE IS ALWAYS LONGING FOR YOU IN MY SOUL__I AM EASILY FILLED TO OVERFLOWING OF YOU.
YOU WELL UP IN ME__MY CUP RUNS OVER.
HOW IS IT THAT I CONTINUE TO LONG WHEN I AM FULL?
"IT IS THE LONGING THAT GIVES RISE TO THE EVERLASTING SPRINGS OF LIFE__AND THESE SPRINGS ARE THE PRAISES OF SUCH LONGING.
FROM GLORY TO GLORY, SUCH LONGING SHALL BRING YOU INTO EVEN MORE LONGING.
IT WAS SUCH THAT CALLED ME APART INTO MY FATHER'S PRESENCE__IT WAS THE ALPHA THAT SPRANG INTO THE OMEGA.
COME AND DRINK OF THE WATERS OF LIFE THAT SPRING FORTH IN LONGING UNTO PRAISE
PARTAKE OF THE FULLNESS OF EVER ENCREASING LONGING."
