This car is one I enjoy as an auto enthusiast. I like it a lot, however, it’s just a car and I’m it’s caretaker for now. My story is not unique. There was no magic moment nor miraculous event that brought me to the place where I no longer search for lasting joy. It is unique in my knowledge that God thought enough of me to expose a path of rescue from myself. If your joy ends not long after the trip ends, when the shine is off the new car or when you complete redecorating a room, I get it. I get it because I love the adrenaline of the pursuit, the acquisition of the next thing and the euphoria of my next deal.
You may never ask the questions I did and you may not agree with my conclusions, but I know things about freedoms from fear, worry and anxiety. We weren’t designed to be like that, just like we weren’t designed to go through our lives bumping off each other either. I know things about transcendent peace and freedoms from the pursuit of happiness. The ephemeral pleasures our world tempts us with will never satisfy the soul.
I can be a selfish man and admit not being a selfish or a prideful man is a full time job for me. Ironically, it was this trait that put me in pursuit of joy that never ends. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy writing it, but I pretty much enjoy everything I do.
