You Have Tried Everything, Why Not Try God?
All your life you have searched for the meaning of life. All your life you have felt that emptiness in your soul as it yearns for something which you cannot clearly discern or understand. You were molded to be an obedient child, nurtured in the best ways of civility, but somewhere along the way, you lost that longing to be pure and chaste. You have tried everything, everything that the world pursues after. You have run the race to get the winner's prize. But at the end of the day, you are still lonely and lost. You poured your heart out to your beloved only to find betrayal and more emptiness. There were days you feel so alone and without a friend. And sometimes, you even contemplated on ending it all and just vanish from existence. But you hold on, mindful that there is something more to life than all these endless frivolities and sham pleasure seeking. That there is a higher purpose in life than being drowned in an existence of sheer hypocrisy and lies to make it appear that you are on top of the world. You have tried everything from booze, to drugs, to sex, to denial of everything that is good. But where did it lead you? You are always back to being lonely and hating yourself and others. Oh how you envy those that seemed to have found their purpose in life, who have lived a fulfilled life. How you envy that sublime smile of a child as she plays with abandon under the sun. How you envy the little ones who always exude sheer joy in their innocent faces. Why can't you be like them? You have tried everything but failed. WHY NOT TRY GOD? He is there for you 24/7. He is always available to hear your corniest jokes, your tales of pains, frustrations and fears. And yes, He loves you so much. He died on the cross for you, didn't He? He is knocking at the door of your heart. WOULD YOU LET HIM IN?
