The Beautiful Ache

by Leigh McElroy


When the best job, marriage or adventure doesn’t fully satisfy, you feel the ache. It infuses every glimpse of beauty or wonder this world can offer and leaves you hungrier than before. It colors your disappointments and desires with equal intensity, and it should—because you were made for another kind of living in another kind of world.

However the ache touches your heart, it is a good thing. It is meant to both entice and unsettle you, and draw you closer to the God who truly satisfies. In The Beautiful Ache, Leigh McLeroy’s powerful writing invites you to hopefully embrace the gap between the life you know…and the life you can’t help longing for.
