Did you know you have a God-shaped hole in your heart? Did you know that nothing will fill it but God?
You were made for God. God is infinite. The God-shaped hole in your heart is infinite also. Nothing finite will fill it.
Cars, superstars, sports, or sex. Cartoons, chemistry, video games, or human love. Emotional highs, money gains, straight A's, or job promotions. Nice abs, vacations, books, or pizza. Good business, sleep, movies, or shoes. Nothing finite will fill it.
The God-shaped hole in your heart can only be filled by your infinite God. When was the last time you visited Him in the Adoration Chapel? If you are not familiar with an Adoration Chapel, it is Eucharistic Adoration. Here is what Wikipedia says about it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucharistic_adoration. Here is what Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P., says about it: http://www.catholic.com/quickquestions/what-is-the-difference-between-adoring-our-lord-in-the-tabernacle-and-adoring-him-exp. Google search which Catholic Churches in your diocese provide Eucharistic Adoration in an Adoration Chapel. Then, go to it to spend time with Jesus.
The God-shaped hole in your heart will never be filled if you never spend time with Jesus. Said a different way, you will never be satisfied if you never spend time with Jesus. You have a God-placed desire for happiness in your heart. God has placed that desire in you because He wanted it to cause you to search Him out and find Him. He can be found in the Adoration Chapel, fully present. Go. Find Him there.
