A baby comes into the world with primal longings to be held, to be fed, to sleep, to be changed. Babies don t worry if it s a good idea to cry out in the middle of the night or wonder if now is a good time for their moms to respond. They simply roar out their need until they are heard.
Our longings continue into our adult lives. We long to be chosen. We long to have control. We long for happiness. We long to be loved. We long to know God cares for us and that we matter. But when we don t roar out our needs until they are met, what do we do? And when our longings are met by anything other than God, why is there an even greater ache that remains?
In The Longing in Me, Sheila Walsh explains how each of us has a sac ... more

The term soul is notoriously hard to define. After all, how can we quantify and categorize something that is invisible, subjective, and untestable? We can't see our soul, so we tend to have trouble describing it, much less actively caring for it. And yet, on some level, we are always aware of our soul. We continually monitor whether we are experiencing peace or anxiety, joy or desperation, fulfillment or emptiness.
As believers in Christ, we often assume that because we are saved, forgiven, and accepted by God, the inside us is taken care of. But is it really well with our souls? Is the inside us as steady and stable and secure as we would like to think? Our souls can only be healthy when they are at home in God: that ... more
