A deep longing to see my folks fills my heart today. It has been five years since I got to sit and joke around with my sisters, hold my precious new niece, or spend time with my parents and grandparents. The distance of 7,723 miles has made it difficult for me to visit them all when my heart longs for my family.
We love to be surrounded by close friends and family even though we seldom appreciate their constant presence in our lives, and long for their support when we get weary or alone.
PROVERBS 13:19 says , “ A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul…”
Paul in his writings to the believers from the dark prisons often wrote how he longs to see everyone. Fellowship with God’s people can indeed refresh a weary soul.
ROMANS 1:11-12, “For I long to see you …that you may be established ..that I may be encouraged.
2TIMOTHY 1:4, ” I long to see you so that I may be filled with Joy..”
Oh,the joy and encouragement to receive a call or text from our friends, and families saying, ” thinking of you as you sojourn alone, or praying for you.”
God will fulfill all our longings today in HIs time if they line up with His Promises and Word. Hold on to His Word, and cling on to His Promises for He is ever faithful, and weeps with us.
Dear friend, how is your heart feeling today?
Have you been experiencing a deep longing in your heart today?
Do you long to see your folks again? Have you been waiting on the Lord to fulfil the desires of your heart regarding marriage?
Do you wake up in the middle of the night praying that the Lord will bless your womb?
Do you long to find a stable job so that you do not have to work about living paycheck to paycheck or taking out money from your savings?
Are you in a new transition in your life and wish to find a friend to simply talk?
How can I pray for you today? Is there a promise verse you pray over that you would like to share here ?
Today these FIVE beautiful verses lifted my soul, and I pray that it will bless you too :
- For He satisfieth the longing soul and fills the hungry with good things. (Psalm 107:9,KJV)
- Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. (Mathew 7:7,KJV)
- You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. (Psalm 145:16,KJV)
- The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing. (Psalm 34:10,KJV)
