>made for another world

>

i took Yaari to youth group again tonight. its been a summer of attempting to introduce her to Jesus… and it feels futile or flimsy and i feel like i haven’t done enough… and i just pray the Holy Spirit works despite me.
on a different note…. was thinking today.

i find that at any given moment, if i think about it, i have a deep-seated sense of dissatisfaction or longing for something more than this life… it never goes away, and it gets stronger over time. i long for deeper fellowship, truer belonging, and purer love. i’ve never felt completely content with how much i see jesus in myself or people around me, or how much i am loved and known, by anyone, ever. and today while i was driving, i was reminded of C.S. Lewis’s saying, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probably explanation is that I was made for another world.”

i like that quote. it induces me to entertain realistic expectations about this life, and more importantly, the one to come.
today i am bound to this earth, but the old will pass and the new will come, and i will one day be found in the world for which i was made. and longing will cease.
