When it comes to things you want to happen this week, this month and this year—even if you were to get all of those things, the way you wanted them, when you wanted them and how you wanted them—true contentment doesn’t come when you have it all. True contentment comes from knowing that all you have is worth being grateful for.
The reason this is so important to hold on to is because, we are always going to want something. No matter who we marry, what degrees we earn, or how much money we have in our bank accounts, as you go through life and experience different things, new things are being created everyday. New goals will grab your attention and you’ll want to reach them. But do you know what else is new everyday? Who God is in your life and the mercy that He brings. Lamentations 3:23 reminds us that God’s mercy is new every morning. Every single morning He gives us new mercy that is worth being excited about!
So when you find yourself desiring more and more, desire to want more of Him.
Your sister in Christ,
