I forget who said it, but it’s true that our hearts were made for none other than God, so our hearts will be restless until they find their rest in God. There will always be a void and a hole in our hearts until we invite God to fill that void. Filling it with anything else is like forcing a square peg into a round hole. It won’t go.
We might not be able to name our deepest craving, but I think deep down we long to be right with God. We long to be free from shame and guilt. We long to not feel broken and incomplete. We long for something only God can give and do and be.
To be right with God is to be right with the created world. It’s to be right with ourselves. It’s to be who God made us to be. It’s to be finally and fully free.
