God Shaped Hole

All things heart and home

This post really touched me. (My post won't fully make sense unless you've read the one the inspired me to write it) I think part of being able to feel completed is recognizing that because we are God’s children and because we are separated from him in this earth life we may sometimes feel a hole in our heart. I know it sounds a little backwards, but it’s true. It’s the same concept as without knowing the bad we wouldn’t be able to know the good. You might think its contradictory, at first but when you think about it, it makes sense. It’s how God created this life. I think when you recognize that you have a God shaped hole and you actively seek after Godly things you can begin to fill it, but this process is not just part of our earthy plan, but our eternal plan.

For me I’ve found a religion I know to be full. It without a doubt carries me through life. Many people consider my faith to come with a lot of “rules” but I’ve been able to gain a personal knowledge of the principles my church stands on through seeking to know more. And while I have daily questions and sometimes confusion I know this is because I am on a path of progression, this is why we came to earth. Even though there are somethings I’m still working to understand I have such trust in the parts I do understand. It’s so important to be able to ask questions and learn for yourself.

I also know that my progression certainly does not end when this life is over. Not at all. I’ve come to earth to get the tools (knowledge and experience) to continue my progression in heaven. Maybe we are given this God shaped hole for a reason. So that we are always striving to improve, that we may become more God- like ourselves. Maybe without this God shaped hole we could not grow, learn, or progress. We would feel stagnant. I believe we have that God shaped hole for a reason because I know God has a plan for me. (And for everyone else) I’m constantly reminded by the blessings in my life to not let that God shaped hole make me feel discouraged, but empowered for I have the capabilities to live with God again!
