Love this from Tommy Tenney…….be encouraged in your journey!
You create “good” emptiness in your life by sowing what you have into the promises of God. When you do that, you are living between “the already promised” and the “not yet delivered.” You are “banking” on the faithfulness and compassion of God, who always responds to human emptiness with divine fullness. People who aren’t really hungry for God, especially those who enter His presence fresh from the bless-me church smorgasbord, tend to sample a little here and snack a little there with extended visiting of other churches. They appear to be looking for “just the right feeling” or “just the right song” to get in the mood for communion with God. God is looking for really hungry people. He hopes to find them in the Church, but if necessary He will bypass an entire temple filled with dainty casual nibblers just to find a few really hungry people on the street, in a bar, or on the wrong side of town.
