Looking for Lasting Joy

How often have you found what you were looking for in life, only to realize it didn’t bring you the satisfaction you thought it would?

It is life’s ultimate frustration – thinking we will find fulfillment in the things of this world. But they can never bring lasting happiness. As one bumper sticker I saw expressed it, “All I want is a little more than I have now.”

We look for love, security, and happiness through our jobs, our possessions, our relationships – but if they really brought lasting joy, wouldn’t we have testimonies to that effect from millions of people all over the world? Instead, we find emptiness, discontent, and hopelessness.

Try putting Christ first and watch how your life is turned around. You will discover that He alone is the source of the love, peace, and joy you have been searching for.


“May the God of hope fill you with all joy.” ~ ¬†Scripture
