What Are You Really Looking For?

If you're looking for someone to make you feel less lonely, you'd no doubt still feel lonely even if you found that someone. Because from the inception of that 'feeling', all you wanted was to feed your own selfish need, you were not thinking to love.

What you think will satisfy you will not satisfy you because in the first place you were chasing after the thing alone, which is always elusive & fleeting.

We should really be chasing after the Source of these things. Then our joy & peace and fullest fulfilment will be found first in Him. Only then are we able to savour everything else fully, not from the narcissistic desire of self-want, but from the renewed perspective that comes with an outpouring of the generous spirit of God's love.
