The Search for Meaning, Fulfillment, Happiness

“There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.” – Blaise Pascal

Solomon spent years searching for meaning, fulfillment and happiness in all the wrong ways and all the wrong places. Instead of finding what he was looking for, his search ended in frustration and despair. What he finally realized was that true meaning, fulfillment and happiness cannot be found apart from God – it can only be found in God. | AUDIO | TEXT PDF

“Power, popularity, prestige, pleasure–nothing can fill the God–shaped void in man’s life but God Himself! But seen from God’s perspective, life takes on meaning and purpose, causing Solomon to exclaim, “Rejoice…do good…live joyfully…fear God…keep His commandments!” Skepticism and despair melt away when life is viewed as a daily gift from God.” (NKJ Introduction to Ecclesiastes)
