Empty, discontented and suicidal

What is life and how can I find my purpose, fulfilment and satisfaction in life?

Many people have never stopped to search for the meaning of life. As years go by, they look back and wonder why their relationships have fallen apart and why they still feel empty, even though they may have achieved what they set out to accomplish.

Many goals, however, reveal their emptiness only after years have been wasted in pursuit of them.

It is human nature to pursue many things, thinking that in them you will find meaning. Some of these pursuits include business, success, good relationships, entertainment and so on, but many have testified that while they achieved their goals of wealth, relationships and pleasure, there was still a deep void inside and a feeling of emptiness that nothing could fill.

So everything "feels meaningless". The Bible tells us about King Solomon who had everything -- wealth, entertainment, relationships -- but in the end he said he had all his heart wanted, but concluded that life under the sun was meaningless.

The real meaning of life, both now and for eternity, is found in the restoration of the relationship with God. That relationship with God is only possible through receiving salvation by faith and fulfilment comes as one begins to follow Christ, learning more from Him, spending time with Him through reading His Word and communicating with Him in prayer and walking in obedience to His commands.

 Now the choice is yours,

You can choose to guide your own life, which results in emptiness or choose to pursue God and His Will for your life with your whole heart which will result in living a life to the fullest and having your heart's desires met with satisfaction.
