Satisfying the unsatisfied human craving

In my late teens I had a deep longing to know God. I had been reared in a religious atmosphere and had received the teachings of the church of my parent's choice, but I knew that I did not know God. I had been taught to love the Bible, so I turned to it and read it through. I found it to be an interesting history of the Hebrew people, but I read it through the eyes of the scholastic theology I had been taught, and its anthropomorphic concept of God did not satisfy my longings. God was still unknown to me.

I wasn't satisfied with my life either, and my unrest took the form of social drinking, smoking, and frequenting nightclubs for entertainment. My husband was a career military man, and this type of entertainment was socially accepted.

We'd love to hear from you!
