Even Better Than Eden: Ch. 1, Wilderness Quote 2
Nancy goes on to say:
“Have you ever thought about the emptiness you feel in this light? Do you think, perhaps, that God has let you hunger for whatever it is you are so hungry for so that you might become more desperate for him, more convinced that he is the source of what will fill you up? Do you think he might want to retrain your appetites, redirecting them away from this world, this life, even this age, so that your anticipation of the age to come might begin to shape your perspective on whatever it is you lack?”
How does the idea that God might allow you to feel your hunger strike you? Sometimes we think that the most loving thing He can do for us is to satisfy us. But what might this idea suggest?
Consider your own hunger. How might He help you see His purposes for them in a new light?
