In the morning you may have these toughts. But by the time evening comes you may want to shift and get some new thoughts.
That is because that is just what they are, simply philosophical thoughts. They do not bring the peace into your heart of knowing the living Person of Jesus.
I broke through from this futility the night I realized that it was a Person I needed and not another philosophy.
It was a living Person I needed and not another religion.
These thoughts will not offer you the deep peace as the inner presence of the Spirit of Christ. He surpasses every man's understanding. And the peace of having been reconciled to God, forgiven, justified in His redeeming work, gives the peace which no philosophy will ever give you.
Its the living Person Who rose from the dead and is available - "...the last Adam became a life giving Spirit" (1 Cor. 15:45)
The living Person of Jesus is AVAILABLE today. Christ is approachable, knowable, tastable, and able to be experienced and fellowshipped with today.
You'll never know real peace until you receive this Jesus. You'll be like the shifting waves of the sea - one philosophy at morning and another at night endlessly, restlessly.
But you can settle it all today by opening up and calling on the name of Jesus for the cleansing of your sins and the imparation of the Holy Spirit.
