As a young girl, I remember learning about the God-shaped hole in our hearts. Throughout my life’s journey I have seen this aching need in every one of us. It is not a design flaw – it is God-made, embedded by Him. I recognise it now more as a hole in my soul, which cannot be filled with anything but God.
In this year of disappointments, loneliness, discouragements and challenge, I have experienced profoundly that God is my only source of strength and living water. Running to Him daily through His word and being filled with the power and life of the Holy Spirit feeds and equips my soul like nothing else.
Gerard Kelly wrote a ‘Twitturgy’ (a short poem for Twitter) this year about our heart’s true home:
You keep my feet from slipping
My toes from tripping
Your grace is the glue
Of the ground, I’m gripping
Healing me, helping me, holding my hand
Your hints of wholeness
Hone my hunger
For my Heart’s true home
May our souls and hearts find our true home with God, our living hope and source of wholeness.
