Our God Shaped Hole

If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
Quoted from Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

I believe we are born with a hole in our soul. An emptiness, a longing for something... We try to ignore it. We try to plug the hole with a myriad of things, each uniquely molded by the individual: friends, relationships, food, books, poetry, success, drugs, busyness.... But everything we try still leaves unfulfilled areas.

The only thing that will ever fill that hole is God, the one who made each and every one of us. The only way to experience fullness & peace is to seek the one who made the hole...
