Children’s book author, Lemony Snicket, writes the following about seeking:   “There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.”  Snicket’s insight on seeking describes multitudes of us, so let’s consider 4 Reasons We Keep Seeking Satisfaction In Life. 
S – Something Deep Inside Drives Us To Yearn for Satisfaction. We possess a real, inner motivation that compels us to be relentless in seeking how to be satisfied. We seek and seek and seek to find it.
E – Everyone “Wishes Upon A Star” For This Exciting Dream To Come True. In our hunt for it, we are like a child allowing our imaginations to run wild. We can’t wait to experience true satisfaction, yet obtaining it doesn’t come easy.
E – Eventually We End Up Empty. We keep seeking, until we tire of searching and start wondering why we’re left with dissatisfaction and emptiness. And staying in this place may cause us to be sad, confused, and discouraged. Unless we discover what we seek, we feel like there’s a big, empty “hole in our heart.”
K – Know The Answer To What You Search For. So if you are one of the majority of people who think “I can’t get no satisfaction,” then hear this: Your only hope is to know the One who both knows you and waits with loving arms for you. Since we are made by God and for God, we will never be satisfied until we enjoy a personal relationship with Him. And this isn’t about being religious, or churchy, or striving to be good enough, or laboring to earn our way by self-effort. It’s simply about knowing the God who made you.
Now if you want to be satisfied,  your human drive for satisfaction can only be found in a personal relationship with Jesus. And when you receive Him as your Lord and God, you discover how to remain fully satisfied in all of life. The reason for your satisfaction is that Christ is your life!
