A Deeper Satisfaction

I can vividly recall a time in my life when spiritual things were not very high on my list of personal priorities. At that time, I didn’t realize that we are all born with a “spiritual vacuum” inside our hearts and this vacuum can only be filled by God in Christ. Little wonder that everything I tried to use to fill that “inner spiritual void” simply could not bring the deeper satisfaction and fulfillment I craved, no matter how hard I tried.

Yet, God in His love, patience, mercy and grace let me exhaust my creative ideas for living life on my terms until finally I keenly realized I had no place to run but straight into the arms of our loving Heavenly Father. Knowing “I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sins upon His cross,” was enough to persuade me to re-prioritize my entire life and start re-orienting all things toward eternity, not just this temporal world chock full of trivial pursuits I once considered so important.

Yet, ironically, these great truths are so personally phenomenal that they simply cannot be fully realized in words alone—they must be experienced by oneself—then and only then can this wonderful ‘soul satisfaction’ be known for all it’s absolute beauty, power and transformation.

When we have grown weary of the world’s temporal “fixes” and we desire ‘something more, something better’ we can look to Christ and at His cross we can find what our hearts desire more than anything else; unconditional love, abiding peace and overflowing joy through His Holy Spirit.

  1. Experiencing Christ is where we find the discernment and faith to walk out our lives for Christ. Scripture and it’s truth are more than words on a page. They are that word made to live in us through the oneness we can have with Christ and the Father!(John 17:20-21)
