There’s a deep yearning in all of us to know Him. Eternity itself is planted in our hearts; we know this quick time in a fallen world is not all there is. We long for the unchanging permanence of God’s glorious light and love.
How can we connect with this unapproachable God? ~~ Ellen Vaughn
When we were born with this vacuum of spirit in our hearts, only One thing will fill it – it is God-shaped and only God can fill it. Try as we might we look for other things to fill the vacuum – the obvious choices are drugs, sex, alcohol, food, love – but what about the not-so obvious choices? What about work, family, children, careers, play, thrills, fear, anxiety – basically anything and everything has been tried at one time or another to fill the God-shaped vacuum in our lives.
I am guilty of this; we are all guilty of this. But God is merciful and loving and ever patiently waiting for us to come to our senses – or, rather, our spirit and turn toward Him.
Each day, every day I must make the choice to approach the Unapproachable and welcome Him into the vacuum of my heart and soul.
