When There's a Hole in Your Soul

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:19


"So what is a hole in your soul? It is a deep, dark well that resides in the core of your being. And the harder you work to fill it with stuff, the bigger the doggone thing gets!"

The author goes on to talk about filling it with stuff - like clothes, romance, status, etc.  but what about alcohol, drugs, food, pornography - OK..you get the drift. We have a hole and we are trying to fill it with things or actions -  basically filling it with a god.  With things that make us feel good - or at least temporarily  But not THE God who will fill us with good things eternally.

Try trusting in God and letting Him fill that hole. As humans we choose wrong waaaayyyy to many times - but He will always choose right. ANd I don't know about you but an eternity of good sounds so much better than an earthly good.
