There was a man who once lost his keys in his front yard. He needed to find his keys in order to make it in the house. He wouldn't be able to get into his office without the keys, or start his car, or do anything worth while. When his wife came out and asked him what he was doing, he told her that he was looking for his keys. They started looking together. They were looking directly below the street lamp and it was after dark. She finally asked him if this was the exact place that he lost the keys. He looked at her with a somewhat disgusted look and said, "No! I lost them over there (pointing to where there was no light) but the light is way better over here."
I think that we do that same thing with finding the one thing that will sustain us. We know where it is. We know that God's Love is the only source that will sustain us, but we tend to look everywhere else. We look to the magical powers of success or friends or shopping or whatever else we can think of at the time. The truth is that it is God's Love through the Spirit that is the answer to every difficultly that we will face today and in the future. It isn't more work, more toys, or more of any illusion. It is only in truth that we find the peace and sustenance that we are seeking.
Spend time today thinking about the truth that you are filled with the Love of God and that you are sustained by that Love. The peace that you are seeking, that each person is seeking, is not found in the illusions of this world. It is found in the Love of God. Think on this today and rest in the assurance that you are Loved.
To Your Success,
