“I said in my heart, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure; enjoy yourself.” But behold, this also was vanity. I said of laughter, “It is mad,” and of pleasure, “What use is it?””Ecclesiastes 2:1-2 ESV
I remember when I chased after nothing but fun and pleasure. Going out to bars, drinking, partying, going home with strange men to meet my ‘true love’. I thought those things would make me happy. But the more I chased the things of this world, the more miserable I became until the only way for me to ‘be happy’ was to be drunk. All the time.
Then I met Jesus. I found true happiness in him. Serving others became more important than serving myself. Being generous, lending a hand, giving back instead of always taking is my priority now. In chasing after the things of the Lord my life has become whole.
I’m so thankful he found me again.
