Our whole lives we spend searching for something to fill us. As human beings, I find more and more myself feeling low, and unfulfilled. I am at a constant longing for something, for God. God is the only "thing" that will ever fill us. But we cannot completely be filled with God until our death. Even the holiest of saints have struggled with this. They become overwhelmed, and are in torment at the constant longing for God-- Yet, they can't completely obtain Him due to their human limitations. This is very frustrating to me. I long for God, and am compelled to be with him whenever I can-- but I can't. I want to rush through it and devote myself as much as possible to Him. But I know that even if I were to get there, there would still be longing. There will be no rest in our souls until we reach our death. What a test God gives us! What a cross He gives us to bear.
