Looking for Jesus in All the Wrong Places

All of us are seeking, seeking relief, peace and redemption from the pains and battles of this life. Unfortunately, we turn to the things of this world to meet this need instead of Jesus. Jesus is the only one who can bring the peace and healing we so desperately need. Through his resurrection, Jesus has conquered over fear, pain and death. He has done it all. All that is left for us to do is to believe in and worship Him.
