Ignoring the Hunger in Your Heart
We all have a natural desire for intimacy and personal connection. God created us with a deep need for relationships. When we feed this hunger the way God intended, we experience emotional satisfaction, overwhelming joy, and lasting freedom. Our God-given needs are met.
But when our heart is not full, and our hunger not fed, we are tempted to find harmful ways to satisfy these needs. If we isolate ourselves from God and others, we face the danger of making choices that can tragically affect our lives.
If we have an emotional void, we are more susceptible to temptation. It’s essential that we daily feed our desire for intimacy through healthy relationships and spending time with God. Because if our hearts are full, we won’t hunger for things that can hurt us.
