Filling Holes

Pslam 68:5

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God is the ultimate doughnut hole!  You see, each of us has an emptiness in us.  A hole in our hearts so to speak.  We try to fill it up with food, entertainment, relationships, work, distractions, …the list goes on.  Many have even bigger holes because of a loss or tragedy or simply a bad situation they were born into.

God is the only thing that can truly fill those holes.

Of course that isn’t to say that orphans and widows can be immune to the sadness of their loss if they believe in Jesus.  The Lord never promises a lack of suffering on this Earth.  He does, however, offer himself up as a replacement.  Much like he died on the cross for our sins, the Holy Spirit also lives in our hearts in place of those we’ve lost.

So we are never truly alone when we have Jesus.  Praise the Lord.

  1. Yumm…that was good. Got anymore? :).
    Just kidding! Thanks for the reminder.
    I am one of the rescued orphans; sometimes still trying to fill my desire, sometimes afraid He wont suffice. Been hurt since “the rescue”, and angered etc. Learned how through it with out too holding on to bitterness 🙂 Yay! Jesus! . The greatest thing I have learned through it, though- to take it easy. It’s a long road, we’ll get there eventually and He is there every step of the way.

  2. thanks for the love everyone!

    I wish I could give you some more content, but I’m headed out the door on vacation and won’t be back for about 7 days, so please look around at the older content and put me in your RSS reader for next week!

    thanks
