God-Shaped Hole

Divine Revelation

Inside of all of us
there is a God-shaped hole.


We find things and people
to put into these empty spaces.


We make someone else our god.


We place all our expectations
on one person,
our hopes and dreams.


But humans will always
disappoint us
and eventually hurt us.


They have flaws
and pain of their own.


They cannot give us
perfect love.


We try to cram other things
but only God can fit.


Only God can find us
inside our brokenness.


Only God can love us enough
to fill our emptiness.
