Made for This

This morning I read this sentence from Hannah Whitall Smith:

“Our souls are of such a divine origin that no other joy but God can satisfy them.”

Hannah Whitall Smith

If we wonder why this or that thing still has not brought us the joy we know deep inside we are capable of, it’s because we are of divine origin. Others have said it this way:

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”

Saint Augustine

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”

C.S. Lewis
