From time to time this happens.  I can’t predict it.

When I sat down to have my daily devotional time with God today, I just couldn’t read.  The weight was too great.  There was this "deep ache" in my soul (best way I can describe it)…calling me…compelling me…just to talk to God…to pour out my heart to Him.

I think God allows us to feel this way, just to draw us to Him.

I grabbed my pen and journal and have been writing a letter (prayer) to God, pouring out the prayer needs that are on my heart…all types of needs…for all types of people.  And as I wrote, the ache started to subside (Philippians 4:6-7).

I’m thanking God for the ache too.  (Yes, I wrote, "I rejoice in this aching.  The ache draws me to You.")  And I’ve been meditating on this verse recently & it won’t let me go…

  • "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12:10)

God’s heart for me…for us…is to take pleasure in needs for how they change us.

Ever happen to you?
