I get a ache when I'm overwhelmed

full of sin.
I get an ache when I'm hurting,
or when I try to cover things up.
I get an ache when the pride inside
won't leave me alone.
I get an ache when I'm lonely
and longing for love.
I get an ache when a guy's around,
making my heart do a flutter.
I get an ache when I realize
this is my life and why am I here?
I get a wonderful ache
when I crave to know more of You.
And an ache when the shambles of my heart
Are caged in a prison.
I get an ache when I laugh so hard
I start hurting.
I get an ache when the sun pours in
Ushering in a new day of mercy.
I ache when I run, breathless and crazy,
endorphins pumping.
Sometimes the aches are beautiful
Sometimes they're bitter
But bittersweet aches make life colorful.
God gave us aches, and when we give them to Him..
We meet...
The God who unburdens us
The Healer who restores us
The Lord who gently breaks us
The Lover who pursues us
The Creator of romance who made us
The God who has a plan for us
The Daddy who longs for relationship with us
The Deliverer who rescues us
The Giver of wonderful laughter to us
The God who has gives blessings to us
The Creator of our wonderful bodies
The very One we were looking for all along.
