Teeming With Passionate Desires For Fullness

August 27, 2014

“I do not believe that we hear Papa’s voice until we discover an empty, desolate void within us that is teeming with passionate desires for fullness. Until we cut through all the legitimate happiness and pleasure in our lives, until we look beneath every sorrow and heartache that comes from living in this world, and until we enter the deepest space in our hearts that is painfully, horribly empty, we will not discover the beautiful sound of our Father’s voice. At least not as clearly as we want to.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The PAPA Prayer, Page 144-145

Questions for Reflection:
• What pleasure or sorrow is distracting your attention currently from feeling the depth of your hunger for God Himself?
• Take some time today to sit with God and offer to Him all that you are, to enter that deepest place of emptiness before Him and to wait to hear His voice.
