There is a spiritual longing in all of us. We run after the questions of life --
Why are we here?
What is our purpose?
What is the meaning of life?
I believe this is a created hunger for God and we will search everywhere till we find Him.
There are many places we search for answers. We discover what religion says. We look to government and education. We seek power and peace through meditation. We try astrology, mediums and psychics. We seek out raw foods and essential oils. We want our dreams interpreted. We try meditation, yoga, Reiki and other means of centering our souls. Yet, our hunger isn't satisfied. We continue to search out new ways to fill the emptiness and squelch the questions.
Don Richardson wrote a book called Eternity in Their Hearts: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the World.
A universal hunger? Universal stories? Interesting to think about.
Jesus tells us if we seek, we will find. If we ask it will be given to us. And, if we knock, the door will be opened to every spiritual truth you hunger for. *
And, Jesus also tells us that He is the bread of life; anyone who comes to Him shall not hunger, and anyone who believes in Him shall never thirst. **
What are you seeking? Do you experience a longing for more? What do you think of the idea that there is a vacuum within each us that longs to be filled? Could it be that eternity is woven into the very fabric of who we are?
I hope you will investigate Jesus. He came because of love for you and for me. Ask. Seek. Knock. I know you will find His peace, forgiveness, grace and Truth. He alone will satisfy your spiritual hunger and thirst.
Eternity is for everyone, but you do need to choose your destination.
