Not All Empty (Psalm 107:9)

If we are honest with ourselves, we know that “all empty” feeling. It is an emptiness that friendship, love, sex, money, power, popularity, or success can never assuagea longing for something indefinable, something incalculably precious but lost. Every good thing can remind, beckon, and awaken in us a greater desire for that elusive “something more. The closest we get is a hint, an echo in a face, a painting, a scene … And then it is gone. “Our best havings are wantings.” said C. S. Lewis.

We were made for God, and in the end, nothing less will satisfy us. Without Him, we are all empty. He alone fills the hungry with good things (Psalm 107:9). – David Roper

Dear Lord, fill me with Your goodness and love. I desire nothing in heaven and earth but You. Without You, I have nothing. Thank You for the abiding satisfaction that we can find in You.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself because it is not there. – C. S. Lewis
