The Final “Peace” in the Puzzle

The God Shaped Hole


This quote is from the book, Pensées, by Blaise Pascal. This is most likely  where the concept of a God-shaped hole in our hearts comes from:

“What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself.”


The God-Shaped Hole

I’ve heard it said a million times
And it’s true I must admit,
“There is a hole within our hearts
Where only God can fit”

And while we seek,
And while we search,
In the lowest bar
Or highest church,

In smallest grain
Or cosmos grand,
He is never far
But always close at hand,

And when we laugh
Or when we cry,
He’ll laugh along,
He’ll dry our eyes,

So close your eyes
And close your mouth,
Open your heart
And release all doubt,

He is Love,
He’ll not condemn,
But fill that hole
Made just for Him.

Father,

May we all stop searching in all the wrong places and simply “let You in”.
