Today I did a devotional from this book by Lydia Brownback:
|Contentment: A Godly Woman's Adornment|
and right away I gleaned a nugget that really spoke to me about this journey I am on:
"Our unhappiness does not spring from what we lack. it springs from our desire for what we lack."
I feel like all my life I've wanted more: a bigger house, more stuff, more friends, more children, more...more...more. My goal is to become content with where God has placed me right now, with no looking ahead to what He may have for me later. As the author so eloquently states, "Happiness or contentment comes from where we look and what we believe, not from what we have." Amen.
