I loved this recent tweet by Pope Francis so much that I thought it deserved its own blog post:
“With Jesus our life becomes full. With him everything makes sense.”
No further explanation needed. No asterisk. No fine print. With Jesus, our life becomes full. That’s it. He’s all you need.
When I read this tweet, my heart just sort of began to ache. What do you do when you know the key to a full life and yet feel helpless to share it with those whose hearts are filled with longing?
I guess you continue to pray. And then write a blog post.
You don’t need that perfect job, or that gorgeous house. You don’t need to be in a relationship. You don’t need half of what you keep telling yourself you need in order to feel “ok.”
But you do need Jesus. You need His love and you need His forgiveness. You need His presence in your life every day.
He is that missing piece. He is the one who will satisfy that ache.
