Thursday's Words of Encouragement

You may have had these thoughts:

"I try to be a good person and am nice. I do not steal or kill and do obey most of the ten commandments."

Sometimes we feel like something is missing even when everything seems to be in place financially and relationship wise.  Relationships, even the good ones leave you with a hole or a void that only God can fill. It feels like there is someone you have not met or something you have not done. Something is not right but you keep looking to find and fix things. You may have even tried more drastic ways of dulling your pain through sex, drinking, buying new things, meeting the right crowd, etc. And despite trying these things, there is still something missing. So where do you go from here?

The void we feel has to do with the incompleteness between us and God. No matter how "good" we think we are , without a relationship with Him we feel empty.

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. (John 14:6 NLT)

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NLT)
“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne. “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” (Revelation 3:20-22 NLT)
