And He has put eternity in their hearts

Have you ever felt a surging loneliness that settles in the bottom of your being, even though you are surrounded by people you love? Or have you experienced an emptiness that hits you out of no-where and a longing for something that cannot be satiated, but you have no idea what you even long for? 
Do you ever see things that are so beautiful that they make you hurt achingly inside?

I have been reading through Ecclesiastes and this verse struck me.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. - Ecc 3:11

 Perhaps these feelings are the result of the longing for eternity. A homesickness for eternity. 
God has set eternity in our hearts... A pre-set love of eternity and longing for "home" placed there . 

And often the only consolation for the unidentified yearning, is found in the very God who set eternity in our hearts.

About Me

My photo
I started "Annalogies" as an outlet of creativity for an overly scientific, logically minded life. I love people. I enjoy the simple things in life. My aspiration is that this outlet can allow me to grow in expression. So go with me and grow with me, if you like. I am just a sculpture still in the making.
