We are meant to be whole. We were never meant to be perfect. Yet we frantically chase any and every thing that might make us perfect. We seek an impossible goal and destroy ourselves in the process. We achieve destruction rather than perfection. Why? How?
A quote by C. S. Lewis provides a powerful clue. “You don’t have a soul — you are a soul. You have a body.” In other words, we’re chasing all the wrong things and none of the right ones. The hollow place in the center of our being is not shaped like a bottle, a cream puff, a new relationship, or the latest “I have to have it” thing. The hollow place in the center of our being is shaped in the image of God. Our souls are crying out, ” We long to feel your presence, Lord.”
We long to feel your presence, Lord, and the Lord longs to be close to each of us. The only distance between God and you or me is the distance we put there because we don’t believe we are enough.
How, please tell me how to feel God’s presence. It’s actually very simple. JUST ASK… He’s been waiting for you all along.
