There comes a time in our lives when we have to give up looking for what we lost. In my early 20’s, I spent a lot of time seeking stuff. I sought out things that I felt would satisfy me, only to leave those experiences empty or feeling unsatisfied.
“For everything there is a season,…a time to seek and a time to lose” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6)
It wasn’t until I began losing some of that stuff that I began to find true satisfaction in my life in Christ Jesus.
There is a time to seek, and a time to lose. Jesus puts it succintly enough. “Whoever finds his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it” (Matthew 10:39).
