Beecher: yearning

Wednesday, December 26, 2018
    Feast of Stephen, Deacon, First Martyr
My soul yearns, even faints,
    for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
    for the living God.
    —Psalm 84:2 (NIV)
    There is not a heart but has its moments of longing,—yearning for something better, nobler, holier than it knows now.
    ... Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887) (see the book)
    See also Ps. 84:2; 42:1-2; 63:1-2; 119:81; 143:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the hope of the nations.
