You may be saying, “I have no hope” and I know how you feel, I once felt the same way, but let’s let hope rise.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.’ (Acts 2:26-28)
Everyone is created with an emptiness within them that can only be filled by the Love of Jesus Christ. We were made this way on purpose so that each of us would seek to have that emptiness filled. Even if we’re not aware that we’re doing so, we will spend our lives trying to fill this emptiness within us until we allow the Love of Christ to bring us that fulfillment.
Some people try to fill this emptiness with alcohol or with drugs. Still others may try to fill the void in their heart with the love of a boyfriend or girlfriend. But none of those will ever truly fill the emptiness you feel inside.
There is one thing, and one thing only that will, it is the love of Jesus Christ. When you place your hope in Jesus, He will come and fill your inner being with peace.
