To glory in emptiness

“There is a space formed by the particular shape of our life.  It is meant for God himself to indwell.  This must be felt as a lack . . . and it comes about through daily circumstances.  It may be caused by the cavern of a lonely heart, the ache of a lost one, the yearning that comes from ‘not yet being home.’ In truth we are to glory in this emptiness–for it is the price we pay for such an immense dignity.  To wait in courage for God to fill our particular emptiness is one of the most profound of love’s acts.”  (Ed Conlin)
