Feeling an emptiness or void?

These past couple of years have been rough for some people because of this pandemic. We’ve been locked up and some are not yet comfortable with going out and socializing. That can bring loneliness and can get depressing. There is that feeling of emptiness. Well that’s’ by design… 

Huh? What? Let me explain. Humans (you and me) are designed by nature to be social. When that social aspect is missing then things get out of balance. But the social interaction is not just with people it’s with God. That’s right. You see when God created humanity he put a thirst in us for him and most people don’t even know it.  I like how A.W Tozer puts it: 

“The human heart has a thirst for God. God created us and something in us relates to something in God. Until these two are brought together (salvation), there is restlessness within the human heart that can never be fulfilled”. 

-- A.W. Tozer

We are all designed to interact with God. Why? Because he loves you. People tend to avoid this. So, if you’re feeling lonely and out of touch, then seek to connect with God. I think of John in the bible. When he wrote the book of revelation he was on an island, (Patmos), all by himself with no one else. All he had was God. God gave him revelation to write and God fulfilled his needs. That some serious one on one time with God. 

So no need to be restless. God is waiting to hear from you. He may just tell you some great and mighty things you do not know. (Jeremiah 33:3)
