I waited impatiently in the hospital lobby, watching old men, young mothers, sick babies, each seeking physical answers.

Whether it’s a minor symptom or a terminal disease, we strain for answers. (Rightfully So)

This cold and rainy morning, I couldn’t help wonder,

“Do we go to these lengths to find the cure for our fractured soul?”

Ever since Genesis 3:1-17

They ate the forbidden fruit, as a result, sin enters upon all mankind and even upon the earth.

Do we recognize the brokenness in us, our empty longings?

Do we try to fill this void with the chasing of the American dream?

Are we in search of, more happiness, more pay, more self-indulgence, more time?

Has the chasing of our self-satisfaction made for a self-prison where we find ourselves never content?

The word of God states this world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

2 Corinthians 4:18

And we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen.

Matthew 16:24-26

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?  Is anything worth more than your soul?”

What good would it be to gain the whole world yet, forfeit their soul?

Everyone is searching for something greater. In these uncertain times, we can be completely certain than anything other than a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ will leave us empty, searching for more.

Until next time, Pam
