Food For Thought….A Void Only God Can Fill

a void only god can fill

I’m convinced that that entertainment industry is used as a surrogate spouse. When we get bored we pop in a movie to feel something, escape options, try to get happy or to pass the time. Our souls are longing for community, love and purpose and we fill it with poor substitutes. Have you ever wondered why even after watching your favorite movie for the hundredth time, eating whatever you wanted and “just getting away for a little while” doesn’t satisfy?

We are craving a love that cannot be satisfied here. Christ was very honest when he spoke with the Samaritan woman at the well. She had been through man after man and was a society outcast. The sad part of her story,…she was still unfulfilled and still looking for what would satisfy. Then her path crossed with JESUS. She hears truth. Her soul is awakened to what depths of depravity it had been living in. So excited about her new lease on life she runs back to the town to tell others.

You know the holes in your life and who you meet with to try to stop the leaking through the cracks. May I make a humble suggestion? JESUS is a balm for every crack, fissure, hole and gap of the soul. Find yourself in His embrace and realize what you are here for.

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
