Empty Pursuits

My child, your life is not your own. This earth is not your home. Happiness is not found in acquiring things. Only I can provide the peace and joy your heart longs for. In Me you find joy. Everything else is a false substitute and will fall short of bringing you lasting joy. Money will not satisfy, pleasure will not bring joy, fame is a bleak substitute for what you can have in Me. Know this for sure, without Me your life will be empty. An empty pursuit of what only I can fill. Stop longing for the temporary and be filled with the eternal. You will have eternal joy when you pursue Me with your whole heart.
