Five Minute Friday: Ache
On Fridays, I join in with The Gypsy Mama, as we play with words. This is where we receive a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes. No over thinking, no planning ahead, no editing. Just words, freely flowing from my heart to yours.
Today’s Prompt: Ache
I was born with an ache in my heart.
It’s an ache so deep, from places within my heart and soul that I don’t even know exist.
It’s a longing, a yearning. It’s a desire to be fully satisfied. Not left wanting. Not left unfulfilled.
Desperately I try to fill the voids created by this ache that brings forth pain long forgotten.
Echoes of moments of regret. Times when I veered off the path laid out for me. The safe path. The path to freedom.
This ache can only be satisfied by One. So I come. I drink up. Yet I am left wanting more. How is it I can drink of Him and be filled and yet long for more? I must continually come and drink. For only His living water washes the ache away.
This ache. I don’t ever want to be unaware of it’s presence in my life. Oh that He would cause me to be aware of my thirst for the One Thing that satisfies.
As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So pants my soul for You, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When shall I come and appear before God? (Psalm 42:1-2 NKJV)
