In the heart of every person lies an inconsolable longing. Men often know it as the hunger for adventure. Women tend to feel it as a thirst for intimacy. This longing is the secret of our lives. It tells us who we are, what our life was meant to be. If you have ever felt those deep yearnings, we have some really good news: this is what the Gospel truly offers.

This book awakened me to how passionately God seeks a love relationship with me. For me, I saw God as all-knowing -- pure wisdom. He is more. His essence is love -- a passionate love. ( )

My biggest insight reading this book is that I have to be willing to give up all my carefully orchestrated plans for "happiness" and trust that God's plan for me, though different perhaps from my plan, will still lead me to happiness - maybe even happiness beyond what I thought I wanted. Ultimately to have a relationship with God, one must be willing to trust Him implicitly. Lots of good stuff about why God loves us and what we're doing here on this earth anyway. ( )

Epigraph
Thirsty hearts are those whose longings have been wakened by the touch of God within them. - A. W. Tozer
Dedication
First words
Some years into our spiritual journey, after the waves of anticipation that mark the beginning of any pilgrimage have begun to ebb into life's middle years of service and busyness, a voice speaks to us in the midst of all we are doing.
