All my longing is known to Thee

Another little gem of a comment on Psalm 38:9  by Amy Carmichael:

Lord, all my longing is known to Thee, my sighing is not hidden from Thee.

“Only a simple word.  This afternoon, words would not come when I tried to pray, and this troubled me; and then it was as if He, Who is never far away, said, What does it matter about words, when all your desire is before Me? Perhaps you, too, find that words will not come when you wish they would.  So I pass on my comfort.

“In St. Augustine’s words: ‘To Him Who is everywhere, men come, not by travelling but by loving.’”
