The cry of your heart.

But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord. 1 Cor. 7:32

Today when I read this verse, instead of reading “careth”, I read it as if it said “cries.”

He that is unmarried CRIES for the things that belong to the Lord…

Are we crying for the things that belong to the Lord? Or for the things of this world? Are the cries in our heart because we are missing some part of the world, like Lot’s wife who looked back instead of onto salvation? Or are we seeking for more of Him, more of His likeness? What is the cry of our heart?

I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. Ps. 57:2

“This cry for “wings” is as old as humanity. Our souls were made to “mount up with wings,” and they can never be satisfied with anything short of flying. Like the captive-born eagle that feels within it the instinct of flight, and chafes and frets at its imprisonment, hardly knowing what it longs for, so do our souls chafe and fret, and cry for freedom. We can never rest on earth, and we long to “fly away” from all that so holds and hampers and imprisons us here.” – Hannah W. Smith

“Everlasting, your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, your glory goes beyond all fame
And the cry of my heart is to bring you praise
From the inside out” – Hillsong United
