Ecc 3:11 – The God hole

You have worked hard for this dream home, and finally, you have it. You have studied for years for this dream job, and now you have it. You have saved everything you could for this dream car, and now it is yours. But, despite reaching the dream, something is missing. It’s just not quite what you had hoped for. Why is it that even when we get the thing we dreamed of, somehow, we are not fulfilled? The wise writer, Solomon, tells us. “God has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11). God has created a space for himself – the only eternity – in our hearts – and there is only one way to fill this space.  “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart” (Matthew 22:37). Attempting to fill this space with anything else will always result in disappointment. This is why we live in a world where so many of the wealthiest, most famous, and most beautiful people are depressed. Having reached the pinnacle of success, they are left unfulfilled. Strive for your dreams but give your heart to God because therein you will find ultimate and complete fulfilment. Open Bible –,
