A Confession of Longing
A confession of longing does not indicate a lack of faith. I will say it again. A confession of longing does not indicate a lack of faith. It is simply honesty. Many of us who are single encounter this accusation in speaking with those who have forgotten their time of trial—if they ever knew a time of trial. It is as though suffering in silence is more noble, living with pretence more spiritual, and smiling through the pain more righteous. I smile through the pain. I give and love and serve—but I am also honest.
