If loneliness is weighing us down, and if we find ourselves doubting that God really is our greatest treasure, we can be honest with him, our kind Father and friend. We can tell him that we’ve been trying so hard to make our life work the way we want that we’ve lost sight of all he is for us in Christ. We can ask him to show us afresh who he really is and to change our heart. Sometimes change begins with praying, “God, I’m willing to be willing.” If that’s the best we can do today, God will meet us there. He is more eager than we are that we come to treasure him above all else, and it is only as we seek him that we’ll find what we have been looking for all along.
