Turning away from God and living life as you want and rejecting the faith to find happiness in that life is a myth. Nothing can satisfy as God does. He is the one and only thing we humans are made for. Unity with Him.
When life hits us hard and pain envelopes us, if we don’t have God to turn to then what do we turn to? Trivial, fleeting pleasures which only leave us hungering for more and never satisfy?
God is the only one who satisfies. Anything else is finite. God is infinite! And if we’re not making God our infinite, then we’re making something else our infinite, our god. And if we do this we’ll end up broken and hurting. And this is not because God is punishing us for our free will and choices, it’s merely because nothing can compare to God and, in themselves, the things we may choose hurt us.
So choose God above all things!
God Bless, talk to you all soon. Zac.
