This morning in my time with the Lord, I read these and touched my life and my soul. Especially in this moment when I feel somehow sad and discouraged. I know this is the beginning of a new life. God is giving me this opportunity to be used for His glory. I need to renew my thinking and change my attitude about myself. 2Timothy4:18 " The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Do you ever feel like you're missing something? Tuning in to God's presence and calling can be a real challenge in our hectic, materialistic world. But we're all created with a hunger for significance that motivates us to seek out a connection with something or someone bigger than ourselves. That's the key to discovering our purpose in the universe.
God has made us for relationship with Himself. Unfortunately, too often we forget that we become who and what we are meant to be only through union with Him. This, the Scriptures insist, is the one place where our heart's desires can be fulfilled (see Isaiah 55:2; Psalm 37:3-4).
Our hunger for significance—the "vacuum" at the center of the human soul—can only be filled by the One who created it. "You have made us for yourself," writes Augustine in The Confessions, "and our hearts are restless until they can find peace in You." As Ecclesiastes 3:11 says it, the Lord has "set eternity in their heart." We are made in the image of God, so we can never be truly content with the mundane, the temporal and the superficial.
Do you ever feel like you're missing something—or someone? That's eternity in your heart, calling you to find true purpose and fulfillment in your Creator. Thank Lord for you unconditional love.
