Longing for More

It hit me on the way to the grocery store.

A song started to play; the kind of music that tugs at your soul. A hint at the perfect song.

And then the moment passed. The song moved on; leaving in its wake a faint ache and a longing for more.

It was a reminder that I am an eternal being, created for something more.

A reminder that although songs and moments may hint at eternity; in this life, they always move on.

I am thankful for those reminders because, if I let them, they reawaken longings for my True Home where I will hear the perfect song and the ache that comes with wanting something more will be a thing of the past.

He has also set eternity in the hearts of men
Ecclesiastes 3:10

For more moments unwrapped head on over to Chatting at the Sky.

how true. why do we seem to push those moments away in the midst of living? thanks for sharing and reminding me to linger in those moments just a while longer.

oh.. this was perfect today. Thank you. I feel that ache in so many songs, am working on a post for my 100gifts that touches on this.
You are so right though.. we must live in our days.

This is such a great post! I was just thinking about this the other day - how worshiping God in eternity will be different from worshiping Him here on earth. You have said it so perfectly - "the ache that comes with wanting something more will be a thing of the past." We'll be hearing perfect songs, forever. :)
