BEAUTIFUL THINGS-Filling the Holes

Once the door was scraped and sanded smooth the holes that were left in it needed to be filled. One by one I filled them with wood putty so that the entire door would be solid. It prompted me to consider how the only thing that can fill us is God and that we desire so greatly to be filled and so often look elsewhere.

Matthew 5:6
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.

Luke 1:53
He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty.

Romans 15:13
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 3:14-19
14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,[c] 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Philippians 1:9-11
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, 10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, 11 being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
