…, The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love? (James 4:5 AMP)
In Senior high us girls and those young men have begun to yearn for each other. Certain characteristics draw us to him or her. For me when he had a kind heart and a good sense of humor I was smitten. Others wanted muscles which i didn’t mind either. But this yearning was never satisfied. It went on as long as we were in school and beyond. Is the yearning satisfied when you’re married? Because it weakens but never goes away for me.
I’m grateful the Lord yearns for me. It softens my heart and helps us to have meaningful conversations. I’ve found I can trust His love and let His mercy wash me. I’ve experienced His tough love this last few months. It hasn’t been fun, and I whine a little, but He loves me and His yearning is sweet.
