Wow! What a compendium of thoughtful reflections on this most human of conditions you’ve put together!
I’m grateful you directed it to my attention.
am reading on my phone, so perhaps that’s where my difficulty lies but I’m finding it a bit hard to know what are your words vs an extra long quote from the next author you cite.
God truly does have a purpose for us in our struggles, and in our longings. I feel it is going through the wringer like this that lets us surrender all and reveals the true desires of our heart that he has designed for us. God richly bless you on your quest for Him.
