Day of 6 "Free from Discontentment" @illustratedfaith devotional "Free to Flourish"
The dictionary describes "discontentment" as this...
: lack of satisfaction with one's possessions, status, or situation : lack of contentment:

When I was young, bright eyed & bushy-tailed, I had this grand idea of how my life was going to play out. I would marry, my husband would have a certain career, I would have a passel of kids in my 20's & then adopt another passel in my 30's. I wanted a rainbow family that I would homeschool. Now that I am 40 & I look back, the only thing that happened like I thought was that I got married. I didn't have a fairy wedding, with a bejeweled gown. I got married barefoot on a California beach surrounded by a few friends & my only family there was my Mom. Still wouldn't change that, except I would want all of my family there.
But back to my point...have I been discontented with my life? Heck to the big ole yeah! Not my marriage, let me just make that very clear. It's been with the lack of not having children, not being involved in church for a long time, not having my own car, my health, feeling like I have no purpose, etc. Those type of things. But you know what? All of those things brought me to where I am right now. No matter my circumstances, my relationship with Jesus...my very best friend, is the most satisfying thing there is. I can't get enough of Him. And through Him, I am content!
I don't know the why's of my life. I just know I'm with Him & He's with me. For that...I'm grateful...So bring on those seasons.

Philippians 4:6-8;11-13
