Searching ?

Hello special friends and Church mates:
 
Some of you know “my story”; for those that don’t, here is a brief into:  In 1988 I married a very secularly-raised Jew and agnostic, who was going to be lead to Jesus (by our Savior and, a little, by me).  In 1995 he was faced with a huge financial crisis that lead him to understand that he couldn’t control the world and maybe there was some other Power out there.  He came to Christ Lutheran with me a few times and then started worshiping at Temple Emanuel.  The next few years he was a Reformed Jew and even taught Sunday School.  He was a much-changed man, though he kept searching and searching and searching.  He didn’t know what he was searching for.   . . . . I did.  He was searching for the true salvation and unconditional love from our Lord.  He slowly--more and more became immersed in his religion to the point of becoming an Observant Jew.  More to come about what it is like being a Christian and living with Observant Jews.
 
Don’t we all find ourselves dissatisfied and searching from time-to-time?  And I’m not just talking about feeling deprived when we don’t have enough shampoo bottles to choose from on the WalMart shelves; I’m talking about dread, uneasiness, pessimism, frustration, down-to-the-core troubles, A to Z—even depression = searching for answers “why?”
 
So what does it take to have peace and understanding?  How simple it is:  Believe that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son . . . and ask.
 
Lord, fill me with your comfort, peace, and understanding.  Erase my sins and pessimism and lead me to my future, eternal life.
