Pursuit of ‘happiness’ got you burned out?

burned out


If only you had more money, more vacation, more fun.

So you work hard in the unmeditated pursuit of happiness. But it’s got you burned out. If only you knew the way to peace.

The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. — Isaiah 60:17.

Does it seem odd that the Bible, unceasingly maligned by the world, should possess the secret to unceasing peace? And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.– Isaiah 32:17.

What brings peace? Righteousness. And they told you that the pleasure was fun and brought happiness. Well, yes. God made pleasure, but sinful pleasures bring torment to the soul and rob us of peace. There is no happiness outside of God.

  3. So real. So true. Another must share. Thanks!

  4. Fabulous image. And yes, if we think our happiness lies in more, more, more, we’ll never be filled. Just as contentment does not lie in outside circumstances, peace and happiness (joy) does not depend on “stuff.” All depends on the fullness of God in us.

  5. This is truth that society today vigorously tries to deny.
