Contentment“The grass is always greener on the other side.”

I was reading a blog post by the lovely Stephanie Wilson on the topic of contentment.

This is something I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. I remember all the way back in 4th grade, looking up to the incredible 5th graders and thinking how great life would be as a 5th grader. It happened again in middle school, looking at the 8th graders, and then again in high school looking toward senior year. In every phase of life, we are looking forward to another part of life and believing that this portion of life will be better simply because of where we will be.

This is something I am currently dealing with. I keep looking forward to my life after college, after finals, after classes, to my “real life” with a big girl job and a family and my life laid out for me.

God is really working on me in this area, not only being content in the place in life that I am at, but also using this time to the fullest. God has me where I am for a reason, he has me in this semester off, where I am just working. He is using this semester to grow me and teach me to trust Him.
