We live in a generation where a lot of people walk around unaware of the emptiness they feel inside.
Before giving my life to Jesus, there was a period I constantly occupied myself with something to do. I was always with friends, partying, shopping and etc. I never really had time to myself. The time I did have to myself was when I would go to sleep.
A time came when I moved to a new country and had fewer friends, which forced me to spend time to myself. In that alone time I started sensing a feeling of emptiness within. I tried to quench that inner void with alcohol, boyfriends, shopping, partying, traveling, and etc, but none of those things helped. They only made the void deeper and wider! After trying everything I could, I decided to surrender my life to Jesus. I don’t remember how it all happened, but within an instant the void was filled. I no longer felt empty. I found my life’s purpose in Jesus Christ.
Do you feel empty? Jesus is the only one who can fill that void within you!
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
