A soul longing for God

Oh eternal God, light surpassing all other light because all light comes forth from You!
Oh fire surpassing every fire because you alone are the fire that burns without consuming!
You consume whatever sin and selfishness you find in the soul.
Yet your consuming fire does not distress the soul but fattens her with unsatiable love,
for though you satisfy her she is never sated but longs for you constantly. The more she possesses you the more she seeks you and the more she seeks and desires you the more she finds and enjoys you.

Found in my Bible a poem by Catherine of Siena.
My heart longs for more of God, I can never get enough of Him. I don't want to move without Him moving first. I don't want to speak without Him speaking first and I don't want to live without Him right next to me every second. When He feels silent I cry out in distress for a glimpse of Him yet again to make sure He's with me still.
I love You Lord. Do you long for more of God today? Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. He longs to hold you close.


  1. Love that Mandy. I am longing for God!

  2. Beautiful words. Our longing for God never leaves us disappointed. He fills fully satisfies and we long for more. If God isn't there, then I'm not going!

  3. I love that He is always that close... I may stray, but He is ever faithful. He is the satisfier of my soul!
