Discover and Become Everything God has Created You to Be!
Where can I find these things? My job, position, or title? My best friend, girlfriend, or boyfriend? My children, my husband, or my wife? My home, car, or possessions? My talents, hobbies, or habits?
Where can I go to fill this gaping hole I feel inside my heart? I try to fit these things inside a space that day and night cries out but it seems the more I fill it with these things, the more empty I feel inside. Some of these things bring relief for a little while, but when the high wears off, I am right back to where I started.
So what can I do? Where can I go? Who can help me?
The only way we can discover what it is that will truly satisfy us is to discover the One who designed us, created us, and unconditionally loves us.
It is good to have ambition, want to excel, succeed, and move forward in our job and career. It is good to cherish and love our spouse, our children, and our friends. It is also ok to desire certain things and to enjoy them while we’re here on the earth. The problem comes, however, when we try to use these people and these things to fill a space that only God is designed to fill.
In the light of eternity, God is our greatest title – He is our Father and we are His Children. He is our greatest passion, our greatest love, and our greatest companionship. In addition, He is the One who can provide for us our greatest level of joy, satisfaction, and pleasure.
We can spend our whole life and search the whole earth, but everything we are looking for is found in Him.
Who, O God, is like you? ~ Psalm 71:19 NIV
