Skip to comments.The Greatest Longing of the Heart.

At the very core of each one of us is a deep longing to be loved. God put this into every soul, He put this into us so that we would search for our Creator. God wants to be loved. Our love is the way we touch His heart.
His light and His love reaches through the layers of wounds that have devastated us. If our hearts were made of paper, those who have harmed us would be able to tear it to pieces. But God made the heart of muscle and sinew that hold it together.
Jesus at the Cross had His heart pierced open with a spear; the love that poured out to mankind was the strongest purest tenderest love that the world has ever known.
By His wounds we are healed of ours. By His shed Blood we are forgiven and the debt forever paid.
I needed to hear this right now.
All alone, but strong.
That was beautiful, thank you
