An Email Between Friends

Me: Are you feeling anxious, afraid, lonely, confused, suicidal, angry, guilt ridden, tired, hateful, stressed, depressed, repressed..... sounds like you have a hole deep, deep inside, that only one person can reach.....!

Friend: Who are you talking to?

Me: Everyone .......

Friend: Who is the one that can help?

Me: Jesus! He puts everything in context and perspective! For example there will never be peace in the Middle East, so we can have all the peace accords, treaties etc. It will never happen. The word of God tells us as much. Men will cry, peace, peace and there never will be peace.

Those who have their eyes open are jaded by politicians, politics and their fanciful but hopeless politicing. Politicians and politics are not the answer. The answers don't come from within.

The answers, come from Jesus.

Religion and religious people have contributed to this messed up world for sure. But do you throw the baby out with the bath water?

An emphatic, no!

We are all searching for more. Something more than this existence!

Something so close but yet so far. Something far beyond wealth, status, fame, sex, drugs, music, power, idolatry, idealism, philosophy, mythology and yes even empty religiosity. People have tried all of these substitutes before and they are not happy, not at peace, but joyless and empty!

Did John Lennon, Princess Diana, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson, that German billionaire who committed suicide because his net worth was cut in half during the recession, seem at peace, seem content?

Looks like they were looking, for much more!!

Do Kanye West, Brittany Spears, Paris Hilton, Perez Hilton, Donald Trump, David Letterman and Oprah, can't forget Oprah, seem at peace to you, full of joy, contentment?

Looks like they are looking, for much more!!!

If you looking for more, look to Jesus!!
