In a world that seems to demand consumption, can we really ever feel satisfied?
Have you rested in the satisfaction of a job well done? Are you reaching your goals? Do you always want more or are you grateful for what you have and feel like it is enough? Do you regularly feel inadequate or dissatisfied?
Many see dissatisfaction as motivating, others as a negative gnawing of want and discontent. Is there a difference between strides of improvement and dissatisfaction?
remain satisfied in god
Perhaps the answer lies in our priorities, our acceptance of God’s truth, our resting in faith. A study of Romans chapter 12 explains how we place our lives before God and how to live for Him.
Billy Graham said being a Christian was the work of a lifetime. His wife, Ruth Graham, had engraved on her gravestone: “End of Construction – Thank you for your patience.”
Don’t let the taunting of the dissatisfied spirit discourage you. Continuing to work towards goals and aspirations.
Romans 12:2, New International Version: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Psalm 107:9, Living Bible: “For he satisfies the thirsty soul and fills the hungry soul with good.”
