There is nothing worse than feeling empty. Nothing worse than having desire unfulfilled. When we’re empty, we’re unsatisfied. And we are placed at risk because we seek to be filled. (I’ve struggled with that!)
Too often we try to fill ourselves up with the wrong things. In the end, after much pain and heartache, we discover our desire was misplaced. And we still feel empty.
Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.”
What do you hope in? If you hope in relationships, you’re often disappointed. If you hope in stuff, you’ll discover “things” don’t bring you the happiness you hoped for.
Do you hope in friends? As a generation, we have never been so in touch with people, yet so empty, too. All the friends we have via the web (even as wonderful as they are) cannot fill us. People we know and love often don’t see us when we’re in our room, crying into our pillow.
If you’re empty, I have good news. The tomb was empty, too. And because of the emptiness there, your emptiness can be filled. If you turn to Jesus, He will fill you with His love.
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, not things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39, NKJV
Feeling empty inside? I know Someone desiring to fill the empty space. He loves you so much. In fact, there’s an empty tomb to prove it.
