"We are painfully incomplete. What we do with that shapes the story of our lives. Desire-longing-can lead us home to God...It's as though we still have a memory of the Garden of Eden, and we are homesick for something we just can't quite get our hands around here. These longings are the holes in our soul. They tell us something important-that we need God...These longings are not meant to go away this side of heaven. We are like Swiss cheese, and the holes in us are actually supposed to be there. The holes are the things that make us who we are. The holes are the places God has reserved in us for Himself! The longings identify our real hunger. A hunger that drives us to Him to be satisfied."
