“I have food to eat that you do not know about.  My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work” (John 4:32, 34).

I’ve heard it expressed that every between-meal trip to the pantry or refrigerator is a search for God.  The same could be said of the drink ordered at the bar; the use of illegal drugs or the abuse of prescription drugs; every illicit relationship.  The idea being that many seek to fulfill the boredom, stress, and meaningless of everyday life with things that bring comfort and a sense of being fulfilled, only to realize that it is a temporary satisfaction.  The eternal longings of the soul will never be fulfilled by the physical offerings of this world.  It’s only in relationship with Christ and living for Him that our deepest appetites are filled.
