RE: What are you searching for?

In life, at some time or another, we all need a 'RE.'

We need a redo.
We want to revamp.
We would like to restart.
We seek renovation.
We want to be refreshed.
We thirst for renewal.
We try to realign our lives.

But what better way to accomplish this, than being transformed and renewed by Jesus Christ?
Romans 12:2 -- Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
You've had a bad day. A bad week. Maybe a bad month or a year. You're tired of following the drudgery of day-to-day life. You're looking for a fix. You feel broken, used and downtrodden. Maybe you're in the boat of people where you have Christ in your heart, but your humanity has gotten the best of you. God seems far away. You're lost and looking for direction.
 John 14:1 -- Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
My advice? Look no further than at the foot of the Cross.

Our Savior paid the price, so that you and I could feel His endless love. By His stripes, we have found true refreshment.
Psalm 51:10 -- Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
This world tries to convince us that what it offers is far more precious than what Christ can offer. But my friends, that is so far from the truth. This world is temporary. We live for a moment, then we are gone. God's legacy and plan will continue with or without us. Why trust the world for peace, contentment and love? It can't give any of those things; and it certainly can't provide true refreshment and renewal.
Psalm 118:8 -- It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
Let the King of Kings and Lord of Lords realign your life. Let Him refocus your life. Seek Him and He will give you the new life and the renovation that you desire.
Jeremiah 29:13 -- You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Our Father won't ever disappoint.
