Our scripture this morning is Psalms 42:1-2.
As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God. When can I go and stand before him?
Often we find that the things of the world leave us weary and sad. Our problem is that the world was never meant to fulfill us. While the world was made for us, we were made for God. Blaise Pascal, 17th mathematician and religious scholar wrote “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God”. Created things will never fill our souls sufficiently, only God can make us whole.
Loving Lord, when we are worn out and unhappy help us to find our rest in You. Refresh us and send us into the world to share Your love. Amen.
