So much of life is about chasing after things and especially feelings.
Fruitless feelings, with good intensions (usually/ hopefully).
Happiness, fun, entertainment, escape from loneliness, escape from problems, or fear. So we do all these things and still there is a gap.
through all I have learned in my life... though not much... I have gathered this: Peace is the one thing we should chase after. No feeling can come close to truly being at peace.
I heard this today in a sermon I was listening to online:
"there is a gap between what we actually know love is like, and how we actually treat each other."
"How would you live if you knew that all the regrets of your past were covered with the death of Jesus."
