When You’re So Satisfied You’re Hungry

“There’s this crazy paradox as we live out our Christian life that is really difficult to think about, because the more satisfied we get in God, the more hungry we get for him. So there are these two rails of experience where we experience settledness and solidity, but also have an increasing need for God that we feel more and more. The most godly people I know long for God the most.” — Erik Thoennes
