Roy’s Blog: “Is Something Missing”

Mark 10:21 “Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”

Feelings of dissatisfaction and emptiness usually motivate us to a desire to change. Many times we think better health, increased income, a different job, or a new relationship is the answer.

Maybe we can’t quite figure out what’s causing these feelings, but we know that something is missing in our lives. Changing our circumstances is a short-lived solution. The emptiness will still be there.

That empty place in our souls can only be filled by God. God made us for Himself, to have a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. This means He is the only one who can fill it. And He will–to the brim and overflowing.

Matthew 6:33 “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
