I’ve taken a break from blogging and posting to clear my head. The question that I am trying to answer is, “What are you looking for?” It’s not my question. It’s Jesus question (John 1:38). It may be the most profound verse in the Bible and the best question of all time. What are you looking for?
I’m looking for answers to life. Why here? What should I be doing? Why this life? I think if you go through life not asking questions you are not really living. And if you go through life without finding answers you end up passing away in a void.
Every time I start asking myself what I am looking for I end up back at one word: God. One simple but profoundly complex word: God. But I think the answer to the question of “God” is found in another simple word: love. Because God is love. And love is simply crawling out of yourself and focusing on others. When you leave yourself behind you actually find yourself. And you find the answer to the question of “what are you looking for?” And you find greater joy, peace, and fulfillment in your life.
I know this sounds really deep and maybe more than a little “other worldly.” But it’s not. We can’t find answers to life in ourselves and our own self-absorbed world. I think life only really takes meaning when we reach out to others. When we strive to see the face of our creator in every person—regardless of who they are, what they own, what clothes they wear, or what job they have.
Once again, I fall back on 7 simple little words to put life in perspective, with love a key one of those words. LISTEN, READ, LOVE, FIGHT, BELIEVE, LIVE & PRAY. Simple. As life was meant to be. As the answer to life should be. The Secrets to Life and answering the one key question, “What are you looking for?”
Enjoy the day. And ask yourself, “What are you looking for?”
