Another Beautiful Ache

As the deer longs for streams of water so I long for you,

O God.— Psalm 42:1

Another early morning 

before the sun wakes,

and I tread the familiar

steps down the dim

hallway to make

our morning coffee

with this ache

to create, to express

something that seems

inexpressible, and I am hungry

and sated all at once —as full

as I become, I still ache,

craving more.

One thought on “Another Beautiful Ache

  1. Then He pressed the thorn into her heart. It was true just as He had said, it did cause a piercing pain but it slipped in quickly and then suddenly a sweetness she had never felt or imagined before tingled through her. It was bittersweet but the sweetness was stronger. She thought of the Shepherd’s words- “It is so happy to love”.

    Excerpt from Hind’s Feet on High Places
    Hannah Hurnard

    “Such beautiful ache planted by Him in your heart
    Comes from a thorn that He is growing
    Into a flower of love that yearns to bloom
    Such a beauty to behold, such a blessing to bestow”
