If money and fame is not the answer, then what is?
Relationships? People will let you down.
Entertainment? That gets old.
Drugs? Alcohol? Drugs and Alcohol are sometimes entertaining for a season. But they blind you and ease you into a place that you never wanted to be. A place you never thought you'd end up.
Education? You worked so hard to earn a degree that you thought would bring you fulfillment, but often times only leaves you wanting more.
Children? Marriage? What will happen when your babies grow up and want to start a life of their own? Where will that leave you? What happens when the reality of a spouse sets in and you realize Cinderella was but a fairy tail?
This I call to mind
and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
The answer is Christ. In Christ is where you will find hope, compassion, fullness of life. He is The Way, He is The Truth, He is The Life (John 14:6). Take Him as He is. He is waiting.
