We think that what we want is sex, drugs, alcohol, a new job, a raise, a doctorate, a spouse, a large-screen TV, a new car, a cabin, a condo in Hawaii. What we really want is the person we were made for, Jesus, and the place we were made for, Heaven. Nothing less can satisfy.
We may imagine that we want a thousand different things, but God is the one we really long for. His presence brings satisfaction; his absence brings thirst and longing.
To see God's face is to behold His beauty which is the source of all lesser beauties.
