Have you noticed a trend? The thing we hope is going to make us happy always lies just beyond our grasp. We are temporarily thrilled when we finally get it, but soon we realize that wasn’t it, and we’re off in pursuit of the next big thing. When will we learn? If everything until now hasn’t delivered the satisfaction it promised, why would we think the next thing will? …The only thing that was ever meant to satisfy you is God.
