When God says no, it can be heartbreaking, suffocating and something that will cause you to examine your entire life. But it is also for a greater good, a good that has not been seen by our eyes, a good that has not been touched by our hands, a good that will ultimately bring glory to Christ and a good that will ultimately bring about restoration to ourselves. For now, it’s okay to mourn and cry out; Christ understands the pain of rejection more than anyone in all of existence.

I still get emotional when I hear “Set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain, that I can’t control. I want more of You, God.” I want something inside me that’s so refreshing, so invigorating, so empowering, so strong that I can’t control myself. I have to lift my hands up and praise and sing and shout about Him. I want nothing less than what God offers and gives me.
