There will always be an emptiness, a longing that can't be filled or quenched for it will always return again and again. It is an ache to be satisfied... a hunger. It is a longing for God and only God can fill this void in me. No man, woman or child can fill it. No drug, alcohol or food... nothing will ever fill that void except God. We can medicate ourselves so we don't feel it... but it will come back again and again until we attend to it.
And if you don't have God in your life but feel content then God speaks to you:
"Go to ye rich -- Go to and howl and weep and mourn.” You need the emptiness that only God can fill. We can find satisfaction in many things but it is temporary and fleeting.
