Emptiness of spirit

Posted by rayww on May 11, 2004, at 15:13:09

When a person grows accustomed to feeling close to God and then pulls away he may or may not notice anything at first, but after a while will begin to feel a void. I remember back a few years (I won't say how many) I went to church and had a wonderful experience. I realized then, after feeling the spirit, that I hadn't felt it for a long time prior to that. It was then that I realized what I had been missing. I took a good look at myself and recognized what I had been doing wrong. Soon afterward I was back in the spirit and that feeling of emptiness went away.

Sometimes the spirit is so strong it feels radiant, so full it feels like it will run over, so bright it feels like I am lighting up the room, and so warm and cozy.

The discovery of truth also fills the spiritual void. When I stumble onto something that I know is true, it seems like a miracle. It's like I know it from my head to my toes. That truth discovered then becomes a part of me, a piece to my puzzle, or a building block in my character.

Although difficult to describe, the spiritual void and the spiritual cup that runneth over, are both real. Almost surreal. But definately real.
