Howdy Y'all

I was sitting the other night watching a movie and one of the characters asked another one what he was searching for. He turned and looked at him and said" I don't know what I am searching for, but I am searching for something I have too find". Are you searching through life for something, you really have no idea what you are searching for?

Have ever lost something and keep searching for it to find it at the same place you looked first. This is a little along these lines, but not exactly. This is about the search that we have in our lives.
A lot of times in our lives we feel lost, have lost something, or feel we are missing something.We do not have any idea what it is but something is not right. Being on the search can be a scary thing especially when we don't know what we are searching for. You can't put your finger on it but you feel you have to search this thing out. We may not be missing anything but we search any way.

When we search we gain knowledge, experience new things, and learn about people and places that we thought knew or we think we know. In these searches there are a lot of ups and a lot of downs, along the way. We try new things and sometimes meet new people. Sometimes we like these new things and make them apart of our lives. When they are not what we want or need in our lives we need to dismiss these things and chalk it up to a learning experience.

Sometimes during our search our emotions can get all caught up in them and we get confused about them. Sometimes feelings get lost in the search and then we get lost inside ourselves and don't know why this happened.

When we start searching for whatever we feel is right. We think that it is worth searching for. Then once we get on the search we realize that what we think we are searching for is not worth the search and not what they really are. Sometimes they are exactly what you wanted and need in your life.

Sometimes we search for something that we already have and don't realize that we have it. A saying comes to mind about this. "You don't know what you got till it's gone" is from 80's rock band "Cinderella". That saying is so true, because sometimes we do something and after we do it we look back and say it was better before you thought you started searching. That is something you have to figure out for your self.
We search and search and search for something in our lives that we think we are missing. All along they where right there in front of us, right under our noses. They were hidden in plain site, you were just blinded by everything that goes on in life. Trust me I have done this myself.

We feel we need to search for something better even though it may be worse than what we already have.

Sometimes we search for something and find out that is was exactly what we thought it would be. The search was the best thing to do in that case.

When we decide to go on our search and leave the security of things just be honest with yourself. Don't get high hopes that is going to be better. Because what ever the out come of your search it was your choice to make. When you feel that you have to search for something then go for it.

We search for things out there that may be a physical need or want. Sometimes its an emotional or spiritual search. It could be something we are missing in our personal life. We don't know what it is but it is missing, that closeness in a relationship. From a parent, spouse, and/or children but something is missing. If its a physical void that we have we must think about it and see if we can be happier with it. Sometimes we will be happier with it and sometimes it may complicate our lives more. We need to weigh all the options before we choose to start searching. A lot of times we start searching for something because we have not had closier in a certain situation and we have a need for that closier in it before we can move forward in our lives. It eats and eats at us until do something about it. Sometimes it may be just a suggestion that we make. That may fix it. Sometimes it takes a drastic measure to do this. Something drastic could change your whole life in a way you never expected, in a good way or in a bad way. Just be careful in your choices and if you decide to start on your search. Think about 1 thing what you are missing may not be at the end of your search. It maybe the search you are missing. The search you may be on may not be out there It could be inside you so search inside your self and you may find what you are looking for .

Thank you !!!
Have a wonderful journey while you search and I hope you find what you are looking for......

  1. I agree that we are always searching for something, but sometimes we don't always know what that is. Just remember it is imperative to pray to the Lord and ask for guidance to know when our search is complete or what direction to take in life. I like the way this blog is written even though it might be a little confusing to those who read it.
