A Deep Longing June 3, 2019

Between January 2016 and September 2018, over 10,000 Canadians died as a result of opioid-related overdose. More than 16% of Canadians are heavy drinkers. Nine babies in every 1,000 are born with fetal alcohol syndrome. Why? Most addicts are craving peace and satisfaction in the wrong places. Augustine of old gave us insight when he wrote “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” God intentionally placed a deep longing in our hearts that He alone can fill. Another of Augustine’s insights gives hope to desperate needy people and reveals a great Bible truth. He wrote, “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”
