This experience would recur throughout my life. Because of the depth of my emptiness, I had more space to fill with goodness. Because I sought goodness in all things and others, I connected deeply with people from all walks of life, and with places and things. And when I found God, read his beautiful word, and entered his community, my soul was finally satisfied, and God became my silver lining—the best part of me.
