Everyone's Looking for It

When you find something or someone that both (1) fills you with joy and (2) is strong enough to uphold you when your world is falling apart, you have found salvation.

Nothing less will do.

Anything in creation can meet the first requirement. Nothing in creation can meet the second requirement.

Only the Creator meets both.
"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and has become my salvation."  With joy you [who speak in such a way] will draw water from the wells of salvation.
Isaiah 12:2-3 (emphasis added)
