Can you hear that?

Shhh, Be quiet and very still. It’s there a gnawing ache, scratching from within. A hunger, but that’s not quite it. A Longing, an emptiness, a vast pit of despair. If you’re honest, and I trust, that to be difficult, if not impossible, to admit.

There is, though, a certain freedom in admitting that it is there. I have done the very thing to irradicate this agony. Use of any number of distractions in the form of substance abuse, activity, striving for status and adulation, etc. It all left me hollow and even more desperate. It has become my belief that this is in all of us, placed there by God, that we might seek Him and gain His Peace in the mere seeking.

There is a slight problem though, alone again with my humanity I can’t endure the shame of my imperfection next to His supremacy. I am saved though by Yeshua’s sacrifice. Today we celebrate that event, solemnly, reverently, searching for the release from that fault.

  1. To err is human to forgive Divine. We do feel that great void at times and it is deeply spiritual. I think its a call from inside for us to reach for love I realise how I talk to myself changes the nature of my cells and so why not love myself as well as others. Its not always easy but emptiness calls for us to notice it and not run. Wishing you self love and peace and embracing your humanity. x

  2. My goodness, your writing is so my cup of tea! Why has it taken me so long to get here?! So glad I finally am. And how funny, this post brought to my mind one of my first posts I had forgotten about.
    (i can’t listen to the video right now, but will do so later)
    Blessings on your Easter meditations.
