Everywhere you look, there seems to be an answer to your emptiness. If you have this job, car, house. If you are married with 2 kids and a dog. If you are this size and look this way, wear these clothes. Eat like this, move like that, hang out with them, go here, say this, do this, read this, watch this! None of it means anything! All of this is just a distraction to keep us away from God!
My struggles with emptiness are no different, honestly married or single, there will be some sort of emptiness. Why? Because without Jesus, there’s no fulfillment. You can be married to the most wonderful guy in the world and still feel that something’s missing. If you don’t have Jesus, then what’s the point? He’s the creator of all, He has the owner’s manual, He knows how things are supposed to work. If we don’t do things according to the owner’s manual, then we won’t get the full effect of what we have. We have to learn that no thing or person will ever take the place of Jesus. That’s how we were created, left with room for Him in our hearts and it can only be filled by Him. I used to try to fill this emptiness with sex and food, but that led to so many problems and heartaches! Sex outside of its intended purpose leaves you feeling emptier than you were before. So you try again with another person thinking that oh, this dude was just lame. Then, the next guy fails and you try another, yet you’re still empty.
Jesus knows all that you’ve done and all that you’re going to do, yet He still says “come to me”. He didn’t come to condemn, but to love…unconditionally.
King James Version (KJV)
8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
So, what if you have Jesus and you still feel this emptiness? That mean’s you’ve spent too much time away from Him and He wants you to come and sit still and be filled with Him. No pressure, no judgement, no scolding, just love.
Be blessed & encouraged,
