I’ve spent February, March, and April getting to know C. S. Lewis through his works. From Surprised by Joy to The Magician’s Nephew to The Weight of Glory to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Lewis has stirred something inside me.
There’s a German word he used—sehnsucht—to describe his inconsolable ache for something beyond this world.
I’ve felt shivers of it, too.
So have you.
That’s because eternity was stamped onto our hearts when God made us (Ecc. 3:11). An ache for something more burns in our bones.
We long for Jesus to come again and make all things new, like he promised (Rev. 21:5). The Kingdom will come, is coming, is partly here.
So we wait, and we let the embers of sehnsucht warm us.
