As a child of the 70s I love what is now called classic rock. Back then it was just the music we listened to. I want it to be called classic because it is of a timeless quality, but I really suspect it just means it is old, sort of like me.
In my later years I have become fond of certain elements of country music. (Is this another sign I’m old?) One of the qualities of country music I enjoy are the stories that are spun in their songs. They just seem to
relate to life and relationships. BTW I’m still waiting to get a house, dog and truck back since I played some songs backwards.
Johnny Lee recorded a song entitled “Looking for Love.” It is the story of the folly of looking for love in all the wrong places. The song is part of the soundtrack for the 1980 movie “Urban Cowboy.”
“Looking For Love” is so relatable because we all gong looking for something significant, such as love, identity, purpose and meaning in all the wrong places. We search for it in the eyes and arms of another
person, in the allure of popularity and celebrity, in another rung of the ladder.
The only place we can find our true identity, purpose and meaning is in the one who created us, redeemed us, restores us and keeps us. When we seek and follow Him, we find all the things we are looking for. For extra credit He even gives us more. To find out his truth check out his words recorded
in Matthew 6:25-34. That’s some good stuff, just look in the right place.
