FEELING, EMPTY, RESTLESS, DISCONTENT?



Yes.  It is empty.  It was made to hold something.
And until it does, it will be unfulfilled, empty, restless 
and discontent.


You and I are the same way.  We were created to
hold something - God.  And when we do not, we are empty.

Some say it was Emperor Augustus.  Others say it was
St. Augustine who said,

"Thou madest us for Thyself,
and our heart is restless,
until it repose in Thee."

[The Confessions of Augustine
(New York: E.P. Dutton and Co., Inc
1951), p.1.]

We were made for God to abide or live in us.
True contentment comes only when we invite
the creator, Jesus, to come in and take up abode
and control in us.

It was that need that prompted King David to say,

"O God, you are my God,
and I long for you.
My whole being desires you;
like a dry, worn-out, and
waterless land,
my soul is thirsty for you."
(Psalms 63:1 TEV)

Do you want true fulfillment, satisfaction and contentment?
Ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and take over.
