Hungering for God...

holy experience

Hunger for God is the homing device He places in our heart,
drawing us back to the place of our origin,
back to His great heart,
back to His love.

We may try to silence the growling within with
and while they may momentarily muzzle the hunger pains
they never truly satisfy.

We may search for God among the gods of this world
thinking the hunger will find satisfaction there.
But it tastes like sawdust in our mouth, trying to love a god
made in our own image
 who cannot love us back.
We are made with a hunger for the Love that loved us first. (1 John 4:19)

He is both the Source of the hunger
and the Satisfaction.
He desires us (John 14:24)
and places within us
a desire, a hunger,
for Him.
