Hollow voice begging for the ever elusive “more.”
Grasping hands that are already plenty full, plenty busy.
Empty stomach that’s just been fed.
That’s how I describe the bug of discontentment. He’s tiny, but oh-so-persistent.
Have you ever been bugged by him? I have. If I don’t pay attention, he coaxes me to shop when I don’t need another material thing, eat when I’m not hungry, and feel lonely when God is always near.
My friend Leah over at practicing joy has a three-post series on how to shoo him away by moving from discontentment to contentment. You won’t find a formula there, but you will find powerful Truth. And Truth is better than formula any day.
See what she has to say. You’ll be inspired and enlightened—and by God’s grace, a bit more content.
