Most of us have seen pictures of children starving in third world countries. The truth is we are surrounded by starving people in all walks of life. It isn’t just the kids who shout, “Mom, I am starving” as we drive by a Burger King. Neither is my dog who thinks she is starving every time I go by the kitchen. There are many types of starvation going on in this world.
There are those who are starved for “love” and seek to fill this void with many relationships that never work for long. Some people are starved for acceptance and will go to extremes to be accepted by others by getting tattoos, piercings, or whatever the latest trend is. Sadly, many hurt themselves by cutting or other means of self inflicted harm in a bizarre way of the hurt is better than the pain of life. We have become a people who are professional at avoiding or covering up the real issue of the root cause of our problem. Millions turn to the use of drugs and alcohol to dull the pain of a starving life. Some become abusers and use power and control of others to make them feel secure in their starvation of security and acceptance.
Every human heart has a void that only a relationship with GOD our Creator can fill. The root cause of most starvation in this world is we attempt to fill that void with other things that can not ever fill it. The Good News of the Gospel is Jesus came into this world to make THE WAY for us not to starve or unsuccessfully continue to fill the emptiness inside with things that will only temporary satisfy. God not only loves us but accepts us as we are for who we are. Once I accepted Christ as my Saviour and LORD my quest to fill the void ended, I no longer needed everyone’s acceptance because I am accepted by Almighty God. Jesus is the Answer to every problem in the world today, but you will never know the reality of His plan for this world or your life until you know Him personally. He loves you just as you are.
God loves you and this my friend is why He gave us the Greatest Gift of Salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. If you do not know Him personally PLEASE go to

James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
All around us the world is starving for answers desperate for Hope. Many feel starved or an emptiness that hurts relentlessly. But no one has to. We have a choice. You can choose to Know Jesus. He is the ONLY Answer and He is our Prevailing Hope.
