In Isaiah 26, I read the following:
v9: My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.
If someone were to ask about my relationship with Jesus I wouldn’t describe it this way. But I wish I would. When is the last time you could say you “yearned” or “longed” for something? These are strong descriptive words.
I’ll say this, I want to have a yearning for prayer, a yearning for seeking God first in all that I do. I want to be in constant conversation with my God. Imagine where we are psyched about our relationship with Jesus that we long for him. Like a 16-year-old’s crush, we are enamored with our God and want more of him all the time.
I will be praying that I find a stronger passion that I become overwhelmed in such a way that it becomes evident to all who are around me. I hope we all find that passion.
