The need for God that nothing else can answer. St Augustine says “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”
This spiritual poverty was answered for me by our Lady bringing me to her Son. In Him I have all that I need. This was the beginning of Jesus revealing Himself to me as my Spouse. No matter what was happening in my life, He was there for me to share the depth of my soul. 
This came to me at a moment of surrender. The scripture became a theme for my life. 

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 – New International Version (NIV)

See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.
19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life
