A Sabbath Rhythm: Soul Cravings

This week’s rhythm comes from the book Soul Cravings by Erwin McManus.  This excerpt talks about a common reality among so many of us.

“There are cravings within me… that pull on me like an addiction.  They have always been with me and have even at times tormented me.  They go far deeper than any physical addiction ever could.  Beyond my flesh, beyond my mind, beyond my heart, there seems to be a place where my deepest and most powerful cravings lie.  And they do not lie silently.  My soul, it seems, always desires and demands, and no matter how I try to satisfy it, it always craves more.  No, not more, but something I can’t seem to understand.”
