The Need

I forgot to put up the photo/poem so am reblogging. Oops

The Need

You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless, until they can find rest in you.

I am very affected by climate changes. When it’s sunny and warm, I am happy and full of life. When it is cold and grey, I am lethargic and down. Actually, I get very depressed. Being that we are entering our winter here in Brazil, the temperatures are dropping, and sometimes it’s grey.

I love this above quote by Augustine. It reminds me that my deepest needs can not be met in the material, nor by me. It reminds me that I need to run to one that is greater than myself.

This poem was birthed out of deep depression and great need. I remembered something that the King of Israel wrote sometime between the 900s and 1000s B.C.
“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me?”

  1. Hi Staci, hope you are well there, sad poem! Here is sunshine and warm enough right now, but I wish I could go away, to travel, to dream, sometimes I feel suffocated, I want to run away, I don’t know to where, maybe an imaginary place.

    1. Sunshine and warmth are definitely welcome in your part of the world. Especially after the Canadian winter. Ugh. Hmmmmm, an imaginary place eh. Hahaha. Or maybe some tropical island?
