Made for Another World

C. S. Lewis' well-known quote from Mere Christianity resonates within me:
If I find in myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.
I find that I keep looking to this life for things that satisfy. I've tried before; I came up empty. But for some inexplicable reason I try again. But still the so-called pleasures of this world fail to quench the thirst deep within my soul. Thank Heaven they do not! For the dissatisfaction and the disappointment thrusts me to God. And there, as I breathe deep of His love, and of His grace, I find the promise of what is to come. I know that all will be well. And I strain forward, anxiously awaiting that world for which I was made.
