A lot of people are searching for something to fill the gaps left in their hearts from the death of a loved one, addiction, divorce, rejection, illness, and on and on and on. But we can ask God to fill the gap. I was one of the searchers for most of my life. I can tell you from one painful experience to another, that there is no man on this earth that will ever give you what you are searching for. God is the only One who can redeem that pain and fill all the crevices of our hearts.
He can plant seeds of hope that will grow over time to more than fill the gaping holes in our hearts and give us purpose, love, and light again.
“I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14)
We are dependent on God, but He is not dependent on anyone. He created everything in existence. We can take great comfort in that fact. He created us to be dependent on Him for all our needs. He delights in giving us good gifts.
We are who we are because of Him. God is all-encompassing without limitations. He is our Heavenly Father who wants a closer relationship with us. If we work on that relationship first and foremost before we go looking for someone else to fill the gaps of loneliness and heartache, He will give us enough to overflow into the lives of others. At the right time, He will send someone as a companion for us if it is His will. God plants seeds of hope in gaping hearts.
So, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters are anything, but only God, who makes things grow ( I Cor. 3:7, NLT).
