Dutiful, faithful activity only serves to deaden the heart’s pain.  It would be easier to just give in and do our Christian duty, but the truth is that this emptiness, this longing, is normal to the lover’s life.  Away from our beloved we naturally feel a longing, a desire, an emptiness.  The only way I want that desire, that longing, to go away is when my Lover returns to take me into his presence as his own.

I long for the same companionship that Adam and Eve experienced in the garden while walking with YHWH.  This is what Jesus came to restore.  Now he has gone away to prepare a place for us, and one day he will return and claim us for his own.  And that day is what I long for, and that longing is the source of my discontent.
