Nothing Satisfies

Have you discovered nothing in life seems to satisfy for long?

Relationships do not fulfill completely.

Success at work doesn’t either.

Having a nice house and car, and sharp clothes doesn’t satisfy either.

No amount of money fills the void inside either.

No matter what you try you can’t shake the emptiness inside.
I’ve been there.

I lived 32 years with an indescribable emptiness inside.As I look back I notice I was trying to fill it with work, husband, children, money, and possessions. I tried to be a hard worker, a good wife, and a good mother. When all those failed to fill me, I began to despair.I became bitter and resentful.No matter how hard I tried to be perfect something always shattered the dream.

Can you relate?

Are you tired of life’s disappointments?Are you uncertain about your future? Do you have a nagging longing that won’t go away?
There is a truth that can set you free from all that.
Would you like to be fulfilled? Want that emptiness to go away? Would you like to know your future is secure?

It can all be yours.I am living proof.I have it.I know the One who can free you from life’s burden, the Truth who sets you free!

    Suresh –

    The following verses are my prayer for you. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 NKJV
    May you see and take the way of escape God provides for you.
    My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:1-8 NKJV
    May you pray without doubting and allow God’s will to be worked out in you.
    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
    May you know without a doubt God loves you and wants what is best for you.
    May God enable you to work with your hands what is good, so you may have something to give anyone who is in need. (Epheisans 4:28)

    All that’s needed for salvation is contained in this verse:
    that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 NKJV

    9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 NKJV
    May you realize how willing God is to forgive your transgressions and sin because of the work on the cross by Jesus on your behalf.
