What's Missing?

Have you ever felt like something was missing? Maybe you have money, friends and some stuff, yet something just isn't there that should be there. I think we've all felt that at various times in our lives. Just days after getting back from my honeymoon I felt that something was missing; we bought a Pomeranian puppy ... missing piece found! I felt that about 3 years into my marriage, then we had a child ... missing piece found! We were living in Tulsa in the late 90's and felt there was something missing; we took a full time ministerial job in Alabama ... missing piece found!

I could go on with stories of feeling that something was missing, then later was found. But I am talking really about something much much deeper here then simply owning a puppy, something that is at the very core. So you have a sense that there is something missing from life; a sense of purpose, a sense of meaning, a sense of knowing why I am here on planet earth? Is that piece missing for you? If so, I believe I know how that missing piece can be found.

I believe this missing piece to be a authentic life-giving passionate relationship with Jesus Christ. I really do. I believe that that is what is missing from many people's lives, even Christians, today! Yep, many Christians are just going through the motions, just existing, doing the little Christian thing; going to church, giving a couple bucks in the offering, volunteering ever-so-often when manipulated into it, but the all consuming zeal and heartfelt love for God is not there to fuel the relationship.

Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Maybe you are feeling like something is missing? If so, I encourage you to thirst for God ... the Bible says that, "those who seek shall seek shall find ..." I know this to be true in my own life. I have had times I was not hungry and other times I have been hungry, I always got more when I was hungry and pursuing God wholeheartedly. Go for it with a reckless abandonment! You won't regret it. I can guarantee you this, when you do this you won't be so overwhelmed with or consumed with stupid petty immature things anymore and your happiness meter will be clicking on FULL!
