The Longing Soul
What is your soul longing for?
Babylon falls. All who put their hope and trust in the world’s glamour, riches, and comforts weep and mourn. For them all is lost. But there are others, those who longed for a better country, a heavenly one. They will not weep. They will gain an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled. What is your soul longing for?
“The fruit for which your soul longed has gone from you, and all your delicacies and your splendors are lost to you, never to be found again!”
