Something Missing?

Ever wondered why we never seem to feel satisfied? There always seems to be something missing from our lives…even when we have got the latest smartphone it doesn’t quite hit the spot. And when we get a new car it soon seems old and just so doesn’t do it anymore. And when we have been on holiday it only takes a few days before we are dreaming of the next one, as if that will fill the big gap. Why is it that there always seems to be something missing from our lives? Why do we always want more? Why do we never seem to get there? Could it be that the something we need to fill our lives is bigger than anything that this world has to offer?

The Bible says that God has placed eternity in our hearts…which is to say he has placed in us a desire for something bigger than anything in this world; and that something is actually a someone…it is him. We are made to be in a special and intimate relationship with God. He is so great and so wonderful and so glorious and he loves us so much that he even put on skin and came into our world to rescue us from the mess we have made.

How about giving God a try…?

Your next step would be to find out some more. I suggest you read one of the accounts of the life of Jesus to check out what he has to say and to find out whether he might know how to get that that hole in you filled. You can do that for free by clicking on this link and reading http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+1&version=NIV
