For so many people in the world and unfortunately for so many followers of Jesus, the phrases "I still haven’t found what I’m looking for," or "I still haven’t seen or experienced what I thought I should by now," or "I’ve looked everywhere and there still seems to be something missing in my work, in my family in my relationships in my emotional and inner life," seem to be mindsets that we constantly struggle with, and we tend to think that if I could just have this one thing, I'd be really happy.

The problem is, if that philosophy worked, we would all be the happiest, most fulfilled versions of ourselves by now, and yet so many of us aren’t. But at the same time, something inside of us screams that we were made for more. So we keep searching and looking, and the majority of us ultimately end up in one of three places:
1. We blame things
2. We blame ourselves
3. We give up on what we're looking for

But what if the fact that you haven’t found what you’re looking for is
actually proof that something out there exists that will satisfy you? You just need to adjust where you look...
