This Is Why I Write

“O Lord, You are the God of the early mornings, the God of the late nights, the God of the mountain peaks, and the God of the sea.  But, my God, my soul has horizons further away than those of early mornings, deeper darkness than the nights of the earth, higher peaks than any mountain peaks, greater depths than any sea in nature.  You who are God of all of these, be my God.  I cannot reach to the heights or to the depths; there are motives I cannot discover, dreams I cannot realize.  My God, search me.”

~ Oswald Chambers
My Utmost for His Highest
January 9

This quote speaks to me of an unnameable longing I have known all of my life.  It is why I write… to search out and live the heights and depths, motives and dreams.
