Real life and joy

There was this one thing I really enjoyed.

One thing that gave me absolute pleasure, filled me with inexplicable joy and changed my sorrowful heart.

After it was finished, I felt like nothing. But it gave me a false comfort and made me want for more and more. Month after month, the story continued.

When I came to know Jesus through His word, I came to understand what I am worth. The knowledge of his priceless love for me and his sacrifice for my well-being changed my way of thinking. I knew I didn’t need that to be happy.

Truly, I don’t enjoy that thing I enjoyed in the past. I suddenly retracted myself from saying I wanted it. I lost the desire to touch it. I haven’t looked forward to prolong that habit.

Has that ever crossed my mind? Yes, several times. But it does not take hold of me anymore. I hate it. That deep passion and longing had been cast away. I now completely lack the senses to satiate my deep desire for it.

Loved. Cherished. Lived. Met Jesus. Witnessed life. Huge relief. Gained control. Thoroughly enjoying. Living victorious!
