I read somewhere about a pier of longing. When a ship has sailed away the pier remains, as a kind of memorial to the hopes, dreams, sorrows, Longings and loss of human beings both the ones left behind and the ones who have journeyed onwards.
Have you ever stood in your life like you were on that pier?
I know I have.
There is a deep, spiritual longing for beauty and Hope and Eternity but also the longing for what was beautiful and secure in the past. It’s kinda like a longing for both Eden and Heaven.
This can only be comforted and held in the Presence of
GOD. He alone holds the past and the future in His Hands. Christ came to forge this link for ALL who follow Him.
Psm 42 Verses 1,2,3 As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for you O my God, My soul thirsts for God for the living God. When shall I Come and appear before Him?
In the here and now I will drink from the River of Living water.
For all of us this DAY.
If anyone thirsts let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. John 73:7B-38
