Our bodies let us know when we are hungry. Our stomachs will growl, we might get shaky, develop a headache, or become grumpy with people around us. It's our body's way of communicating to let us know we need nourishment. If we refuse to acknowledge it, we will eventually cause damage to ourselves from a lack of sustenance.
I believe we hunger for other things too. We were created to seek something more than just our current circumstances and have these hunger pangs within us that create discontent. Acknowledging this and searching for satisfaction is the beginning to easing our discomfort. We can ignore it for a while, but eventually we will cause damage to ourselves from a lack of fulfillment.
What are some of those things we are hungry for?
That’s a fairly lengthy shopping list of items to be looking for. It might seem to be too difficult to find in one place, but God designed His Church to be a refuge where all of this can be found. When we experience this and find our hunger satisfied, even for a while, it’s a beautifully fulfilling thing to be part of.
