'engage the obvious'

"I would have bought a little condo and filled it with IKEA trinkets and dated some girl just because she was hot and would have read self help books, end to end, one after another, trying to fix the gaping hole in the bottom of my soul, the hole that, right now (looking at the stars) seems plugged with Orion, allowing my soul to collect that feeling of belonging and love you only get when you stop long enough to engage the obvious....(because) God is good..it doesnt do any good to run from Him because what He has is good and who He is, is good...what I want is HIM. If He made all this existence, you would think He would know what He is doing, and you would think He could be trusted. Everything I want is just Him, to get lost in Him, to feel His love and more and more of this dazzling that He does." -Donald Miller
