Our Heart-Shaped Cavity

In each of us, within the deep recesses of our inner being, lies a void. It could be called a spiritual vacuum of sorts. Think of it as a heart-shaped cavity that nothing but the love of God can truly fill. Oh, we try to fill it, by every other means possible! The world around us has become very clever in creating distraction, always diverting our attention to substitutes promising to fulfill that spiritual hunger.

Yet there is no solution but God alone. Only by becoming His child do we find contentment replacing the spiritual poverty we often don’t even realize is there.    Somehow, we instinctively know this to be true. It’s the reason people run to various religions in their attempt to ease the deep-seated distress of the human condition.  And it’s also why those who stubbornly hold no belief system at all rebel so intensely against Christ’s message of salvation.
