It’s the unanswered requests of a heavy heart that often confound and confuse us in the journey of faith. Why would a good, gracious, loving God remain silent in our despair?
Can we be completely satisfied in this life?…Without realizing it, most of us are searching for ultimate satisfaction through the accumulation of our possessions, success in our careers, harmony in our relationships, margin in our finances, and even righteous religious devotion. We often believe that “one day” we’ll have what we need to be truly fulfilled, truly in harmony with the universe, and absolutely satisfied.
The problem is, deep down inside, we know who we really are and so does God. We can’t outrun that reality, no matter how awesome we present ourselves to the rest of the world.
Throughout the Scriptures we see examples of God using humanity in unique and individual ways, all with the intention of bringing unity, healing, and redemption to creation.
