We may feel satisfied. We might have a truly happy and fulfilling life. We can spend every hour of the day serving others, devoting ourselves to the Lord, and feeling His joy. But it’s at the end of the day, when we curl up in our beds and let our bones sink into the mattress—it’s when we’re completely alone—that we realize there’s still a little bit of emptiness there. And there always will be. Because nothing can fully satisfy us while we’re on this Earth. Nothing but our real home can.
So we wait patiently until then.
