There are times in our lives that require evaluation and decisions. We need
to determine what elements of life we value. We also need to determine what
elements of life are necessary. Most of us desire to have a satisfying and
fulfilling life. We pursue the things we feel will accomplished that;
education, jobs, marriage, family, home, friends, community, possessions,
etc. For each of us the list and its priorities is different. We search for
the right combination that will fill the desire of our soul.
There is in each of us a deep longing for peace. Oh to be at peace. Along
with peace there comes another longing for joy, an inner satisfaction with
the way things are. We search for the elusive peace and joy throughout our
As we search we move different things into higher priority places with
hopes that we will strike the right combination. Truth be told we are a
restless and wanting people. Why is that? We fail to realize attaining
fulfillment and satisfaction is outside our ability and control. Peace and
joy are not circumstantial. They have nothing to do with the events going on
around us. They have everything to do with what is going on inside of us.
In some way it is not our fault. We have been taught from an early age to
react to our surroundings. We have been taught to pursue certain goals that
will provide our happiness and significance. Let me share that these two,
happiness and significance are not synonymous with peace and joy. We do not
need happiness and significance to enjoy a good life. This is contrary to
all we have been taught.
We need peace and joy. We were designed and created that way. We can only
find it from the creator himself, God. He knitted us together in a certain
way that we need community. We need to be with other people. We spend our
entire life trying to find the right group of people, the group that allows
us to let our guard down. The group that allows us to escape the judgment
and ridicule we find in so many other places.
A community of believers should be that place. We should be drawn to a
group of people who have committed to pursue peace and joy without the
string that are so many times present in the world we live. When we get that
right we attain love, unconditional love. A very difficult task when all we
have to rely on is the training we receive in this world of judgment.
I am convinced that nothing I do or say will put off God from loving me.
His word tells us that, nothing can separate us from the love of God. Then
why is it that we pursue a life of division, judgment, and valuation? That
is wrong on so many fronts. It is understandable because that is how we are
taught to think. There in lies the problem, we have relied on man to
determine what is necessary for life instead of turning to the creator of
We have deviated from His book and now are reaping the harvest of our
error. We need to return and learn the ways of the creator. We need to turn
The Bible is a book of instruction and example. We have corrupted that
into thinking it is a tool to be used to divide and judge. We need to change
that. We need to embrace the right model of living before we can hope to
enjoy the peace and joy that we were designed for.
