Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder
When one is young and still newly in love there is a lot of truth to this. Wisdom teaches us that as we get older “Absence makes the heart cry louder.” It flat out doesn’t want to be separated from its companion.
Absence from God, through sin or simple lack of attention, makes one’s heart and soul cry out louder for God. The longer the relationship, the deeper the commitment one has with God, the louder the cries to reunite.
God gives a couple a window into his heart, when we feel and examine our own heart that is in a long-lasting, loving relationship. I may not know much, but I am fortunate enough to know what I am talking about in this regard.
Have a great weekend.
