What's Missing From Your Life? Find The Answer HERE

Have you ever experienced any of the following?

Failed Relationships
An endless quest for material things
Some form of addiction

If so, have you ever wondered WHY?
Have you ever asked yourself why this endless search for things, status, money, people/relationships keeps resulting in failure and frustration - or even sadness and depression?

There is only one perfect love - and we cannot find it in people or material things.

True, unconditional, Fatherly love. Love that you and I cannot even fathom! This is not the false, deceptive concept of love that the world offers. 

From the Catechism:
221 But St. John goes even further when he affirms that "God is love": God's very being is love. By sending his only Son and the Spirit of Love in the fullness of time, God has revealed his innermost secret: God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and he has destined us to share in that exchange.

Since God has imprinted His Love upon us and "destined" us to share it - we can NEVER be satisfied without it. 

We would always feel that something is missing - this is why the quest is endless. 
So please - for your own sake - don't rely upon the things or imperfect people of this world! There is a perfect love - the Love of God - just waiting for YOU to accept it. 

I know this from personal experience. I returned to Church 17 years ago and I'm here to tell 'ya - the holy water didn't boil and the steeple did not cave in lol - and I found a peace I had never, ever, known before.

The Catechism says:
27 The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for.

We can all feel the truth of this within our innermost being - because God has written it there. I leave you with a short meditation from Scripture. Please try  - if only for a few minutes. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

Sit in  a moment of silence. Read this short excerpt of God's Word slowly - then read it again (this is know as Lectio Divina.) Let the Word of God - Your loving Father - sink into your soul. Seek Him - turn to HIM - and you will know lasting peace and joy that this world can never give.

“I have loved you with an everlasting love
Therefore I have drawn you with loving kindness."
Jeremiah 31:3
