Void In My Life

 filling the voidFilling The Void In My Life

Podcast #8

In this episode, we discuss filling the void in my life – and that is a life without a real handle on what this life is all about. Many people try to fill their lives with things – so many things that don’t ultimately make them happy. Material possessions are fleeting. Even relationships come and go, but the one constant that never changes is God. Do you have a void in your life that needs to be filled? Listen to this episode with Felice Gerwitz

Show Notes: Filling The Void In My Life

At one point or another in our lives we go through a crisis that begs the questions why am I here – why do I exist – what is this life all about… For a Christian the answer is easy – or easier, we were created to love and know God – to seek him in our daily walk and to seek his perfect will for our lives – but still, even with the answer the solution may still be evasive too us.

It’s like a kid doing a math problem. If he has the problem and the solution that doesn’t mean he knows HOW to work out the problems – or do the steps necessary to get to the final answer. The same for us as Christians.

Many people in the world – whether you are a Christian, a Jew, an Agnostic or Atheist will at some point in their lives face a crisis. No one is free from trouble in their lives.

When I say, some don’t have a life purpose, the focus is not on a daily list of to-dos

I’m not talking about:

  1. A plan for the day/week/year
  2. Schedule
  3. Goals, Ambitions
  4. Family, Friends, Colleagues
  5. True love

I am talking about being lost in a world with so much to do, so many distractions available to us at the tips of our fingertips. Many times, this feeling of being lost leads to depression – there may be a series of events or life circumstances that have added to the burdens of daily life and maybe you are one of those people carrying this burden in silence and grief.

Maybe these people I’m referring to are your friends, your neighbors, co-workers, or even members of your own family.

How does this void happen? What can you do about this? How can you fill this void in your life? Let’s take a quick commercial break and we’ll tackle this when I come back…

Looking at the why can help in finding a solution – it is like that math problem I spoke about where you have the problem and the answer but not the solution…

Filling The Void: Ask yourself these questions:

  1. When was the last time you were truly happy?
  2. Fill in the blank: Everythign will be better when _______________ happens.
  3. Happiness and joy happens when I do ____________________

Just doing this small exercise can be very telling – right?

  1.  often times happiness is equated with an event. A new baby, a wedding or proposal, a raise in a job or perhaps even a success, materially or with some type of award.

Often we seek happiness and joy in the wrong places – success, kids, spouse, family or the material things in our life …

  1. Everything will be better when…

whatever that crisis is we want or need to look on the other side just for our own peace or self-preservation to get through the hard times – this is good and it does help us, but know there will always be some type of crisis in our life. Some type of void even after the crisis passes

  1. happiness does not equal an event and until we realize that true happiness, joy, and peace only comes from GOD then, we will succeed and fill that void.

St. Augustine said, “You have made us for yourself, Oh God and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you.”’

How do we fill that void?

Let’s first spend quiet time with God – right? The whole purpose of this podcast series to spend time with God. In the next podcast – True Joy and Happiness in God’s Will I will give you a list of ways to meditate on this concept. But, right now – this is the foundation – find that time to spend in quiet with HIM – allow HIM to come in and fill that void.

Study these Scriptures: Filling The Void

Job 8:13-15 – putting our hope in things that do not endure – explore what that means for you.

Luke 12:18-20 – we store up our treasures and yet these are material things – but what happens when the Lord calls us home? Have we worked out our treasures in Heaven?

John 1:16 – , or His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace…

 

Friends only in spending time with God in complete silence can we hear HIS small still voice, I pray you hear His voice, because he is calling you to a deeper and more filling life – with HIM in the midst of your life and in all you do!
