He wants to fill us

What I learned from Michael Ramsden today: God does not want to empty us, He wants to fill us. He doesn’t negate the reality of our longing for fulfillment, but He leads us to the point of recognizing that He is what we are looking for. So the question is whether we are willing to abandon our preconceived notions about where happiness lies and the pursuit of things that we believe will bring us joy (when we know deep down that they are mere counterfeits) in order to accept the truth that nothing can be better than Him.
