long - (noun)
long - (verb)
What happens when the longing gets too long? The things I long for are not evil desires, but good. All my longings take effort, rather than wishful thinking. What happens if I throw in the effort and nothing happens? I'll still be much better off for putting in the effort, rather than hoping and dreaming but not putting feet and hands to it.
At one point, King David asked God in the Psalms, "How long, O Lord?" Sometimes I have to deal with myself when I start thinking like that. My time is linear and finite; God's is infinite. I'm always afraid I'll run out of time; God has all the time in the world. I am in a hurry; He is patient. I want it all now; He wants it for me at the right time.
