I remember the day I closed my eyes as tears fell, and I whispered, “God, please either take this longing of my heart away or show me Your answer. I just don’t think I can keep hoping for what no longer seems possible.”
If you’ve ever prayed a similar prayer, I want you to know you’re not alone. Unmet expectations and longings are tough on the human heart. Especially when what we keep praying for is a good thing … a reasonable request … something we see God blessing others with.
What our souls are truly longing for, though, is more of God. His best is the only source of true satisfaction. He is the only answer to our every desire. He holds all the answers to all our disappointments and will direct our desires in His way, in His will and in His timing. He’s got a good plan for good things.
That’s why my team at Proverbs 31 Ministries and I wrote The Answers to Your Deepest Longings: 40 Days Through the Bible. I can't wait to walk through this timely and needed study with both our Online Bible Studies and First 5 communities.
