There is a world of people out there looking and searching for something real. Longing for depth, value, meaning, peace, and freedom. How many of us go through our day to day life with this deep hunger within to be seen, known, and understood? How many of us long to find our purpose and live it out? How many of us long to fulfill our destiny? All of us, I’m sure.
Within each body is a heart full of longing. Everyday we can choose to see the people as they are or we can seek to look past the present and into the heart that is longing for something more.
But I ask myself, what holds back the longing? What prevents us from meeting those heart cries? What stops us from even daring to ask ourselves what our own heart is really longing for?
In my expert (lets just laugh at that) opinion, I think it is fear, fear of falling, fear of rejection, fear of not being enough or measuring up. I believe it is the fear that we might not be seen, known, or understood. Fear that instead of love and belonging we will be disowned and abandoned.
But what if our perspective changed? What if our fears were fully relieved? Would we then ask, would we then try, would we then seek? My friends, oh what beauty you would find.
For those who deny fear a hold, for those who dare to go deep within their souls, asking your own heart for its longings and seeking to meet them with love, true love.
My dear ones, you will find that you are seen, known, and understood. You will find that you are loved with passion than you cannot even begin to fathom. You are here now with a purpose. You have a beautiful destiny. You will walk in great freedom. You will know the truth.
My heart for you my friend is that you would know “truth” is not TRUTH unless it sets you FREE! Truth comes in love, grace and mercy. Truth comes gently and with kindness. Truth comes and brings peace.
Fear will be replaced with assurance. Longing will be met by hope. Truth, freedom, identity, confidence, peace, and joy will burst through. You will not only find something real, you will know who is real. And from this beautiful place you will live out of what is real and true.
No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it— What God has arranged for those who love him. But you’ve seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. – 1 Corinthians 2:9 MSG
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. – Matthew 7:7
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. – 2 Corinthians 3:17
And this is what the Lord said to me. “I love you. I’ve got you. You will not fall too far. I will catch you. I will keep you. I am with you. I am for you. Do not be afraid. I have gone before you. I have set the table for you. You are mine. I am yours. Breathe, rest, and know I am here with you always.”
