Why do we still search for joy in other things, when in Christ we have a living hope and purpose and in Him only we will have peace and contentment. Everyday, when we wake up.. what do we desire? Do we constantly think of something that could fulfill our minds and our hearts? Are you resting in the living hope or are we draining ourselves, constantly trying to fulfill our joy and put our hope in temporary things ? Be content in Christ. Don't lie to yourselves, because what you think will bring you happiness is only temporary. We are only content when we look to Christ. You will only be satisfied when you are able to truly say "all I have is Christ". Constantly be reminded of His love, His characteristics, His amazing grace, and be refreshed once again in His living word, realizing we have a greater purpose than what this world has to offer. How amazing it is to rest on His living hope. Continue to seek God, glorifying Him with all of you, because seeking to satisfying yourself in earthly things will just continue to fail you.
Only when our hearts are filled with His holly spirit, we could truly be thankful, great-full, and satisfied, because that is when we understand our purpose more, the purpose we were created for.
