Aha! Moments...

Why didn't anybody ever explain to me the vast difference between the things in life that make me feel good and the things that make me happy?

Or maybe they did, but it didn't feel good, so I didn't listen...

I too got your blog from Robert's post. Feeling good seems to be a temporary thing...be being happy seems to be more of a mindset. Yet, I know that I don't always feel good nor am I always happy.

I am looking forward to reading more.

Hey there! My name is Paul. I have followed so many links today I don't really remember how I landed here..but anyway...

I find that I often seek "good feelings" as a distraction from the unmet longing for that which will truly make me happy. You know what I mean? In the absence of what I most desire I seek to numb myself on lesser desires.

Yet, such is the nature of addictions. The more I seek to fill myself on that which cannot fill me the more I seek to fill myself on that which can not fill me.

The time comes when one has to stay with the emptyness and see it as an invitation for God.

bjk,
Thank you so much for your prayers. God has been walking with me every step. I have so much to learn of Him!

I've been distracted, disorganized, and doing everything in fits and starts lately. I find it so hard to work without a routine! But I'll be back.

Thanks for your encouragement and support, but above all, your prayer is precious.
