Broken to be Whole

They say that everyone has an empty space inside them longing to be filled. Some try to fill it with things, others with the search for a "soul mate". However, that God-shaped hole in our lives cannot be filled with anything other than God.

Pretty things are fun every now and again, and there are people in my life that I love dearly. However, none of this would mean anything without God - without Christ dying on the cross for me - without the Holy Spirit in my heart.

Life consists of so many broken pieces and it is in drawing near to God that our broken selves become whole. Priase be to God.

  3. This was a beautiful post!

    It's always good to be reminded that no one or no thing can fill the empty "holes" in our hearts besides Christ.
