i miss you…


For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes the partial will be done away with.
–1 Corinthians 13:9

I have been eating off paper plates for a while now. Beautiful, white, disposable plates. Quick…convenient…tasty…at least for a moment. But oh for the feast. The four course meal. The indescribable feel of forever–where everything turns to rubbish and fast food becomes bland and I wake with a longing…a longing for a feast.

Now I sleep…aching…malnourished…because for some reason I’ve been blessed to sit at the table…and I hate that I’m satisfied without it…that I’m satisfied with drive throughs and fast food…I miss Him.

I walk with Jesus. I love Him. But there is something about the feast. There is something about His feet.

Oh for the grace to enjoy the one thing necessary (Luke 10:42).

I Miss You
by Shane Barnard & Will Hunt

Put down your paper plate
Come to the table made
Deep blue china
Found on the table by the wine
So Fine

It brings out flavor
Like You bring out color in life

Oh, I miss You so
The feel of forever
Oh, that state I know
It hurts to remember
Unfortunately high
Ironically dissatisfied
I miss You
I miss You

Oh, I miss You so
The feel of forever
Oh, that state I know
It hurts to remember

I had a fleeting thought this morning
And I mentioned You today
It breaks my heart just to know You in part
And not to be with You where You are
