John 6:35
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

Hunger and thirst are basic human needs that are appeased with food and drink.  At times, no matter what or how much we take in, our hunger is still not satisfied. Our bellies are full, and yet we still feel empty.

Perhaps this may be an indication for us to change our focus and decipher if it is our soul that is lacking in nourishment. Spiritually speaking, there is a hunger and thirst for God that often is not recognized for what it is. Perhaps that empty feeling is a sense of longing or loneliness, and we are masking the pangs of hunger within.

In this broken world we need to remember more than ever that in addition to the Lord providing us with bodily nourishment, He is calling us to feed our souls on a daily basis. He wants to satisfy our deepest longings and desires, nourishing us with His love and compassion, so we may never hunger or thirst again.

As much as we may search to satisfy our physical desires in this lifetime, in the end it is only God who can fulfill us … and who we should be longing for.

Have a blessed day!
