I’m sitting in Panera Bread right now doing some work, catching up on some reading, and listening to some worship music. I was reading the Word and the song “God Shaped Hole” by Ryan Phipps starting playing.
I almost started weeping in the middle of Panera Bread! This is one of my favorite songs and the truth found in the lyrics have changed my life. Here they are:
If I owned every kingdom in the world, I’d still need You inside of me.
If I climbed every mountain in the world, I’d still need You inside of me.
If I was better than every person in the world, I’d still need you inside of me.
And if I liked what the mirror said to me, I’d still need you inside of me. I’d still need you inside of me.
The more I live the more I see a God Shaped Hole inside of me.
I need to constantly remind myself of this truth… I have everything I need in Him. Regardless of what I do in life, what I achieve, and who I become…that will never take away my need from an intimate relationship with Him.
