In all of us there is a yearning for something. Something that our heart's desire, wants, craves for; for the right reasons; with all good intentions. Do not let your yearning be confused with envy. Envy can be consuming and wicked.
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
Proverbs 14:30 NIV
Resentment kills a fool, and envy slays the simple.
Let our yearnings and desires include Jesus.
My soul yearns, yes, even pines and is homesick for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out and sing for joy to the living God.
Psalm 84:2 AMP
Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek
His face and to be in His presence continually!
1 Chronicles 16:11 AMP
Oh how I yearn for a better relationship with Him…one of complete trust and strong faith. A trust that walks with me daily, a faith that carries me through. To trust that He will bring us rain at just the right moment… To have a faith that He will bring us relief from our worries and challenges. This is my prayer. I will "Trust in the LORD with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding" Proverbs 3:5. Especially during these uncertain times.
So… with that, I welcome August, although it will still be pretty hot…its one month closer to fall…Ahhhh… My favorite scent of the year. Fall smells like cinnamon, spices, apples baking, cool crispness, cookies, and nuts! Now have I put a yearning in your pocket?
What I’m likin’ today~
The tease of rain in the cloudy skies
Plans and promises
Swedish Apple Pie~ homemade of course
A quiet country life
Paint on my brush
Living more with less.
Losing count, while trying to count all my many blessings…
Here's hoping you have a blessed day!
