I have spent my whole life looking for things to make me happy, to keep me occupied and bring me joy.
From hobbies, to people, to pastimes, I am searching.
I don’t stay in one place for long; I am quick to leave unfulfilling things behind, to move on, in pursuit of better options. There have even been times when I’ve optimistically returned to a dusty old interest, only to rediscover why I had abandoned it in the first place.
From interests, to friendships, to entertainment, I am looking.
I have travelled far and wide on my search for the fulfillment I need to be happy, but I have come up empty every time.
From restlessness, to loneliness, to boredom, I am wandering.
In the midst of these journeys, there is only one place that I always return to. It’s the one place that never disappoints, the one place that always nourishes my aching soul.
It’s in the arms of my Creator – the loving embrace of my Heavenly Father.
Being with Him brings me such comfort, peace, and joy … it’s unlike anything else I’ve ever known.
No matter what I’ve done, regardless of how far I’ve gone astray, He is always waiting for me to return to Him; with everlasting patience, He welcomes me back.
Living out His plan for my life is the hobby that I need.
Having Him for my closest Friend is the companionship that I need.
Experiencing His presence is the pastime that I need.
From peace, to fellowship, to contentment, I am satisfied.
I am home. ❤
Fill the void in my heart, O Lord,
Satisfy my thirst;
Through all of this, I have come to see
That You must always come first.
