THERE IS A RELATIONSHIP WHICH MAKES LIFE COMPLETE. WITHOUT THAT RELATIONSHIP, THERE IS A VOID, A VACUUM IN LIFE. Many people, even those who are well-known, can attest to that void.
H.G. Wells, famous historian and philosopher, said at age 61: “I have no peace. All life is at the end of the tether.” The poet Byron said, “My days are in yellow leaf, the flowers and fruits of life are gone, the worm and the canker, and the grief are mine alone.” The literary genius Thoreau said, “Most men live lives of quiet desperation.”
Ralph Barton, one of the top cartoonists of the nations, left this note pinned to his pillow before taking his own life: “I have had few difficulties, many friends, great successes; I have gone from wife to wife, from house to house, visited great countries of the world, but I am fed up with inventing devices to fill up twenty-four hours of the day.”
Beloved, true happiness can only be found in our relationship with Christ. Only in this relationship can we have “the peace that passeth all understanding” (Phil. 4:7). Remember, God has “blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Eph. 1:3). Diligently work on your relationship with Christ and watch true happiness develop in your life.
